Devanagari is a Unicode block containing characters for writing Hindi, Marathi, Sindhi, Nepali and Sanskrit. In its original incarnation, the code points U+0900..U+0954 were a direct copy of the characters A0-F4 from the 1988 ISCII standard. The 孟加拉文0980–09FF , 果鲁穆奇字母0A00–0A7F , 古吉拉特文0A80–0AFF , 奥里亚文0B00–0B7F , 泰米尔文0B80–0BFF , 泰卢固文0C00–0C7F , 卡纳达文0C80–0CFF , and 马拉雅拉姆文0D00–0D7F blocks were similarly all based on their ISCII encodings.

Devanagari, also called Nagari, is an abugida alphabet of India and Nepal. It is written from left to right, does not have distinct letter cases, and is recognisable (along with most other North Indic scripts, with a few exceptions like 古吉拉特文0A80–0AFF and 奥里亚文0B00–0B7F ) by a horizontal line that runs along the top of full letters. Since the 19th century, it has been the most commonly used script for writing Sanskrit. Devanagari is used to write Hindi, Nepali, Marathi, Konkani, Bodo and Maithili among other languages and dialects. It was formerly used to write Gujarati. Because it is the standardised script for the Hindi, Nepali, Marathi, Konkani and Bodo languages, Devanagari is one of the most used and adopted writing systems in the world.
