  SUPPORT
  
  While this DICT version of Monier-Williams is freely available, the
  financial cost of developing a resource such as the Cologne Digital
  Sanskrit Dictionaries remains significant. Those who find this version
  useful might consider supporting the continued development of the
  Cologne Sanskrit Dictionary Project. Contributions should be sent to:
  
      Cologne Sanskrit Dictionary Project
      Institute of Indology and Tamil Studies (IITS)

  CD-ROM VERSION
  
  Please note that a CD-ROM version of the Monier-Williams
  Sanskrit-English Dictionary is also available. It includes a fully
  indexed database application for searching under Microsoft Windows (98
  SE through to at least XP). On a reasonably fast computer, the CD-ROM
  version gives virtually instantaneous display of your search. It also
  includes the Cappeller Dictionary and reverse lookup that allows you
  to search English words within a definition and then to display that
  Sanskrit word along with its definition. You can almost
  instantaneously switch between Cappeller and Monier-Williams
  definitions. Text is editable, but great care must be taken to
  preserve database links.
   
  Enquiries should be directed to:

  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
  
   Full credit should be given to Koitsu YOKOYAMA & Takayuki HIROSAWA for
   the digital version of the `YogAcArabhUmi'. The author's sole
   contribution has been to extract, convert, filter & sort the file.
  
   For the correction of the curious markup of the original
   `YogAcArabhUmi' file the version of Stephen Hodge has been most
   useful. See :

   YogAcArabhUmi (Chinese-Sanskrit-Tibetan) (Tokyo: Sankibo
   Busshorin, 1996)
