(La)XeTeX is your friend.  As soon as you are dealing with the world's
languages rather than just those of Western Europe, it is better to bite
the bullet, adopt Unicode (and hence XeTeX) wholeheartedly, and bask
in the warmth of the knowledge that you will almost certainly never
need to adopt another /ad hoc/ encoding for the remainder of your life.
