Rupee symbol in ms academy website using rupakara font

I have used the Indian Rupee symbol in Management Scholars Academy website to quote the course fee for our PMP boot camp here using rupakara font. Rupakara is a new font created by Michael Everson to give support to the newly invented Indian Rupee Sign, which has been assigned to U+20B9 by Unicode. You can see the rupee symbol in my site only if you have the rupakara font installed in your computer. You can download the font for free from here

(How to install and use in MS Word etc: Download the file to your computer. Unzip the file. Copy the 4 files with extension .ttf Find the fonts folder through windows control panel. Paste the 4 files into the fonts folder. Now the font is installed.

Once installed you can use it to type the rupee symbol in word, excel etc. This part is not straight forward one key press. You have to change the font to rupakara in MS word and type the keys “20B9 Alt X” in that sequence. You can also go to “Insert” “Symbol” find the rupee symbol and then insert it into the document.
