How to read this Blog.

I am using Tamil Unicode in this blog. To read this blog download and install any one of the Tamil Unicode font like "Latha"(Latha Download). If you have Unicode already installed in your system and still having problem to read Tamil please check your browser settings.

For GNU/Linux OS and Firefox browser
1. Install a Tamil unicode font in your system. (You have to restart your desktop environment after font installation(alt+ctrl+backspace))
2. View the web page in some browsers (such as konqbrowser or Firefox). if you get any problems, try to change your browser's encoding into utf-8. Upgrade your Firefox.
3. If you get any font spacing problems, please make TSCu_paranar.ttf as your browsers default font.
4. Join Tamillinix yahoo group for support. For more information

For Windows OS and IE browser
1. Change the view-->Encoding menu in your browser to Unicode (UTF-8) and refresh your page.
2. If Tamil text is still not displayed, try setting the display font for Tamil in the Tools-->Internet options-->Fonts menu to Latha which is a free Unicode Tamil font that comes with Windows XP .
3. If you are not using windows XP, then you can download Tamil unicode fonts for free from here and then install in your computer.
4. Then set the Tools-->Internet options-->Fonts menu to the font you just installed and then Change the view-->Encoding menu in your browser to Unicode (UTF-8) and refresh your page.
