RAVINDRA GARU,

You must be able to use an entire range of Unicode supporting WYSIWYG
editors to type in Telugu or any other language.

The problem lies with inputting Telugu text, I for one use a Telugu/Indic
keyboard (without interference from English letters).
For more detials you may see the group
http://groups.google.com/group/telugublog

Regarding Transliteration from one language to another, you can use
1) http://girgit.chitthajagat.in/
2) http://eemaata.com/indic2indic/index.php  (Based on Padma)
For example you may also  look here <http://soundarya-lahari.blogspot.com/>in
the right pane.

Regards,
राकेश्वर रावु
