Sanskrit Heritage adaptation
Many thanks to Thubtenrigzin,
who managed to convert the HTML version of the Sanskrit Heritage dictionary
to the Babylon (gls) format,
preserving hyperlinks and devanāgarī display.
This format may be translated further into the formats dict.dz, idx, ifo and syn
usable by the Babyloo, Stardict or Goldendict software.
