  We still don't have a solid mechanism to render devanagari as text,
but you can show any normally behaving morph as balloon content of
another morph.  So, like what you guys do with other text, using
graphical one is an option.

  Try a code snippet like this:

s := SketchMorph new form: ((Form extent: 100 at 100 depth: 16) fillColor: Color green).
m := Morph new.
m assureExtension balloonText: s
m openInWorld.

and if you mouse over to the blue Morph (m), you see a green rectangle
in the balloon help for it.
