How do I type and display Sanskrit on my PC/Mac?

There are two separate issues here: (1) Sanskrit type is usually displayed using the Devanagari range of Unicode, for which both fonts and keyboards exist; (2) many Indologists still prefer to use the CSX (Classical Sanskrit Extended) or CSX+ transliteration schemes, which use the Latin alphabet and a complicated system of diacriticals.
