There is a text called vaidyanAtha dixitiiyam, which is revered and 
followed by smArta-s. This text puts together views of various 
smritis and dharma shaastra-s on different topics.  Abridged version 
of this text with the name "samxepa dharma shaastram" was published 
sometime back under the command of kAnchi mahA periyava and it is 
being sold for Rs 35 in Madras (at a highly subsidized price). It has 
the sanskrit original and tamil translation. It is also available 
online at

I have not browsed the site, as I have the printed edition. You need 
their fonts etc. to view the text. There is a section in the book 
called aahnika dharma prakaraNam which touches on topics like 
sandhyopaasana. This book is wonderful summary and a reference on 
various aspects of dharma.

This online work was undertaken by in Chennai, 

Just FYI. I was told that this book is accepted by [at least some] 
shrii vaishhNava-s as a source for reference.
