The following has been posted recently to comp.os.linux.announce.  I
think this is of interest for you too.

   Unicode test files for Indian languages.

   Systems Development Lab., IIT Madras, India is pleased
   to announce a free service for preparing Unicode test files 
   (UTF-8) which may be used for testing Browsers and other
   applications for their ability to handle Unicode.

   A web interface is presented for submitting the text. To
   allow text input from virtually any Browser, the familiar
   ITRANS format is provided.

   The submitted text is returned as a UTF-8 html file so that
   the rendering of the text by the Browser is immediately seen.
   The result page also contains an image of the desired text 
   besides the Unicode part to permit verification of the rendering
   of the text.

   The interface could be used to generate text of one's choice
   which may include conjunct aksharas and special symbols.
   Though input in ITRANS, the text will be returned in one of nine
   scripts: Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Devanagari, Bengali, Oriya, Telugu,
   Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil.

   Current rendering of Unicode text is far from satisfactory under
   Linux (Mozilla or Opera) in respect of Devanagari. The demo will 
   be very useful to identify the problems.
