Dwarka is designed to work both as a display and body font so it works well both in titles and in
body text. The font sets out to provide a Punjabi likeness of Gujarati in the same way that Tsheg sets out to do the
same with Tibetan.
This font has a set of glyphs in the ASCII range that are all 'straight-tail'. The glyphs in the Gurmukhi range are
also all 'straight-tail' if your image processor/word processor doesn't support the advanced typography features of
TrueType fonts. However, if your program does support them, the Gurmukhi/Unicode glyphs all spontaneously turn into the
'curved tail' variants that is one of the characteristics of Gujarati.
Like the 'Full' and 'Dekho' fonts, longer Ek Onkar figures care produced by typing a Gurmukhi one then an oorda
of some type followed by a tippee - see the notes for Dekho below for the details.
Dwarka has Latin number characters in the ASCII range so, if you are using ASCII characters instead of using Gurmukhi
Unicode and you want to have the Gurmukhi number characters then all you have to do is type two has marks adter the digit, so
in order to get a Gurmukhi six, all you type is '6##' as in the image on the right.
All of the image work is done with the free software 'The GIMP';
