Experts,
Thanks for answer.

Please can you advise, how to make a website in Hindi. I mean what kind of programming/technology feature is involved in that.

-Thanks

What do you mean by "website in Hindi" - displaying Hindi content? As long as you have a font that has those characters (like MS Unicode Arial), your browser will know what to do with it; that's what Unicode is for.

of course the technology will be in english

as ulf suggested, you can use unicode fonts.

Read CSS and HTML to know about the 'technology'

@David Newton, sankrit is a very very old language of our indian ancesters,
it is known by a very few scholars just like latin is known to only a few now.

It doesn't have much to do with either of those, really, beyond ensuring that the layout can accommodate multiple languages (if that's what you intend to do; if it's all Hindi all the time, then the point is moot). Just serve the content in Unicode and make sure to set a proper content type. To be more user-friendly, you may want to read the request's "Accept-Language" header and act accordingly.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, I can't tell the difference between Hindi and Sanskrit since they both use the Devanāgarī alphabet these days ;)
