You are out of luck if you want to use Devanāgarī in MS Word for the Mac 
since Word on the Mac (unlike on Windows) has no complex script support 
- although the Mac operating system provides this MS Word does not make 
use of it. There are other word processing applications for Mac OSX such 
as Nisus Writer which properly support Unicode and complex scripts 
including Devanāgarī .
