Hindi keyboard on blog

So it seems that there is a Hindi keyboard option on this blogger. Cool.

अरे मन वृंदा विपिन विहार
जद्यपि मिलै कोटी चिंतामणि, तदपि ना हाथ पसार
बिपिनराज सीमा के बाहर, हरी हू कौं न निहार
जै श्री भट्ट धूरी दूसरी तनु, इहि आसा उर थार


OK It's a little tricky, especially since it seems to be designed for modern Hindi, so some of the Braja forms have to be corrected. Well worth mastering though. Does not seem to believe in certain vowels, at least not on first selection what to speak of some of the other unfamiliar combos that are found in Braj. Short vowels also seem unfavored. It is pretty annoying to have to edit each word to correct the spelling.

भाग बडो वृन्दावन पायौ
जा रज कौं सुर नर मुनि बंछित, बिधि संकर सिर नायौ
बहुतक जुग या रज बिनु बीते, जन्म जन्म डहकायौ
सो रज अब कृपा करि दीनी, अभै निसान बजायौ
आइ मिल्यौ परिवार आपने, हरि हंसि कंठ लगायौ
श्यामा श्याम जू बिहरण दोऊ, सखी समाज मिलायौ
सोग संताप करू जिनि कोई, दाव भालू बनि आयौ
श्री रसिक बिहारी की गति पाई, धनि धनि लोक कहायौ

Very irritating, in fact. It does not seem to want to do short vowels, and refuses to recognize -au or -ai most of the time. The above is large size font, by the way. Normal size looks like this:

अरे मन वृंदा विपिन etc.
