Subject: Standard character set for india languages and others

Dear netter,

I'm working on mapping tables (character set to UNICODE) for several
foreign languages. I'd like to know the national standard character set
(other than UNICODE) for the following languages. For instance, standard
character sets for Chinese are BIG5 & GB2312. If there is no standard
character set for a specific language, I need to know the most popular
character set being used and where I'm able to acquire the electronic
data (prefer web site):
(1) Azerbaijan
(2) Bengali
(3) Kannada
(4) Lao
(5) Punjabi
(6) Tamil
(7) Urdu

Please reply me directly. Thank you in advance!

Subject: Topic and Focus expression in Swedish and German

Hello,
	
I'm looking for references on the expression of topic and focus in swedish and 
german (widely available journals or on-line refrences : other journals may be 
hard to find at my university).
I didn't find anything on http://linguistlist.org/search.html

Many thanks.

P.S:
