      Description

      Since 1.4 J2SE has bundled an ISCII91 character converter.
      Although the ISCII91 standard supports multiple Indic writing systems the converter
      is limited to the Devanagari script subsets. Multiscript support for
      Telugu, Ghujurati, Bengali, Gurmukhi are not supported within the provided
      ISCII91 converter. This limitation needs to be indicated within the current J2SE
      documentation bundle:

      The URL
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html

      Needs to be updated for 1.5, and 1.4.x to clarify this limitation
