Indic numeral numbering through <pagelist/>
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Many books in Indic languages contain the page numbers in the headers in respective Indic numerals. The support for such numerals in required in the <pagelist/> tag similar to roman, folioroman etc.

For example in this book from page number 93 all numbers are in Tamil numerals till 197.

similar to support for "roman", support for "tamil" and indic languages is required.

The implementation of folio roman in <pagelist/> can be seen for reference at T73821 .

Request for such feature can be seen here
