Some more things.

If padma needs some specific encoding or specific script to trigger the 
transformation, why doesn't padma define some tags for such encodings 
and scripts and codify auto-transform on the basis of that.

Please see. encoding is a browser default that we set once and forget. 
We can't define encoding for each site/ page, nor does browser remembers 
if we had previously set some encoding for some site/page. hence, it is 
not convenient if padma gets triggerred on some particular encodings.

Maybe padma could give option to users to create the site/page - 
encoding combinations in padma's options so that auto-transformation 
gets triggered if the site matches padma's site list and padma can know 
the encoding from what padma has saved.

Similarly padma can define tags like <ITRANS></ITRANS> and 
auto-transforms pages where these tags are encountered.

Websites who find it helpful to have their contents auto-transformed 
through padma might start following it.

And, even if websites don't follow it, padma has grown beyond websites 
and people are (at least I am) using padma to convert things to Unicode 
by creating html pages, including source text that needs to be 
converted. Then I load that in browser and padma should auto transform 
it. I will surely use padma defined tags if it helps me in getting what 
I want.

I am even ready to use a <PADMA> </PADMA> tag in the pages that I create 
for transformation if it helps me.

please give it a thought.

And, why use that hi-fi word TRANSFORM. The net standard for such things 
is CONVERT. :-) But no problem, I can live with it.

Thanks for your patience.
