HOW TO TYPE RUPEE SYMBOL FROM KEYBOARD ?

The Indian Govt has just Announced the Symbol for Rupee currency and It will take almost one year to implement the same in all over the world as there are many regulatory requirement involved in implementation .However I have found a trick from the net by which you can start using the Rupee symbol from now .It is very easy to use the trick .Trick is developed by Foradian Technologies.


Steps To Install the Rupee symbol.
How to use ?

2. Install the font. (It is easy. Just copy the font and paste it in "Fonts" folder in control panel)

3. Start using it. :)

Rupee Firadian.ttf  (find attach file for Font)
How to type the Rupee symbol ?

Rupee symbol mapped the grave acent symbol - ` (the key just above "tab" button in your keyboard) with the new Rupee symbol. Just select "Rupee" font from the drop down list of your fonts in your application and press the key just above your tab button. It will display our new rupee symbol. Try it.

 
Limitations
The "Rupee.ttf" font is necessary to view the currency symbol. So as long as the new symbol is not encoded in to unicode font by default, we cant use the symbol universally.means if you type the symbol in your letter and send to other person but the receiver has not installed the font then he can not see the rupee symbol.
