    After getting the rupee icon with foradian technology, one can type and insert this rupee symbol, but when you mail the matter having this rupee symbol, the recipient doesn’t get this symbol. There ` appears, instead of new rupee icon. Some it is not flawless. Will someone enlighten me how it could be received by the recipient as it is sent from my end?

    Seriously India is a BANANA Republic – Even our New Rupee Symbol , truly symbolize Corruption”

    RTI Activist Exposed Rupee Symbol Design Scam :

    for more information go to >>> http://www.saveindianrupeesymbol.org/2010/06/violation-guidelines-indian-rupee.html

    Few Days Back, Raj. Congress Minister have Exposed “Our Honorable President of India used to clean dishes and cook food for Indra Gandhi’ and because of it she become president of India..

    So now what could we expect in our country …

    To put it rather bluntly, and without any apologies, we are morally and culturally corrupt. From the ordinary cops, to the CM or the PM – we nurture corruption, nepotism and filth in our close proximity without battling an eyelid. Be it moral depravity, social callousness, or human brutality, nothing shocks us. We have accepted the “juggad” as the way of life. If there is “something in it for me” anything goes.

    We are tolerant because we are habituated to live on crumbs and proud of it – never caring to ask if we deserve the rewards that someone else worked for. We, our people, our institutions, are like street dogs – can be easily swayed from our goals by the scent of some easy crumbs that is put in out way.

    You cannot Copy Paste fonts for them to work. You have to install the fonts in order for them to work. HEre is how you can do it.

    To download and install a new font
    1.When you find a font that you would like to download, you should select one of the file download locations, click the link, and then follow the instructions in the File Download dialog boxes to complete the download to your hard disk drive.

    You may also want to make note of where you’ve saved the download to, so that you can easily navigate to it when you install the font through the operating system.

    2.Add the font to your computer through the operating system.

    If you are using Microsoft Windows® XP

    1.On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
    2.In the Control Panel, double-click Fonts.
    3.On the File menu, click Install New Font.
    4.Navigate to the location where you saved the downloaded or unzipped font, and, in the List of Fonts box, click the font you want to add
    5.Click OK.

    You won’t be able to do so in gtalk or any application other than Ms Word. If you need to send this symbol then either share link of this article or save a word file with this symbol and share thst file.

    Try this: Copy the new rupee symbol and use that instead of “`” in Find and Replace function.

    I am using Word2000, but i cannot seem to find and replace all instances of Rs. with the new font. I am getting “`”, and to replace all instances of the “`” i have to do each one manually, is there any easy way to replace all in one shot.

    IT industry is competent enough to get the symbol into usage. It is the govt that needs to get this done without any political interference…

    August 14, 2010 at 12:11 PM

    no official date has been given out by Goverment of India for this font to be standard?
    Typical bureaucracy and smells of lack of IT acumen- govt shuld also improve, no use just boasting about IT inductry
