Discussion of Tamil Fonts
In this section, the reader is exposed to the variations seen in the fonts available for the Tamil Script. The desire to display text in Tamil on a web page had already set some pioneers on the job as early as 1992. For a variety of reasons, the developers of fonts for Tamil did not envisage a need for some minimal standardization, which resulted in totally different approaches to using the fonts on a computer, each approach based on the specific aspect of each font.
The purpose of this page is to illustrate the variations and also explain why most of them including the standard proposed at Tamilnet-99 have serious limitations for computing with Tamil. Viewers may want to review the section on Desirable set of characters for Printing and Display of Tamil texts to better appreciate the points made in this section. It must be kept in mind that these fonts have been designed primarily for display and printing of text using special font dependent applications for data entry. Consequently none of them can be used meaningfully for linguistic text processing in a straight forward manner.
Installing and Using Tamil fonts
If you face trouble viewing in Firefox do the following:
Go to Tools ->Options ->Content-> Advanced and Enable the Check the box saying '
'Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above'' and select OK
For Linux Operating System:
Copy one of the Tamil fonts file from Tamil Fonts(but we recommend Lohit-Tamil font) to .fonts directory in the user's home directory. If .fonts directory does not exist in the home directory, please create it. Finally run the command 'fc-cache' from the command prompt.
It is very important to restart the browser, only then you will be able to read the content in Tamil.
We recommend Users to use Mac OS X 10.4/Tiger/Leopard and Safari 2.0/Safari 3.0.
Users have to remove the fonts that are copied over from Windows. Safari on Mac OS substitutes the default fonts when the specified font is not available.
Unfortunately iPhone doesn't support any Indian Unicode fonts. We are as eager as you to make our language channels iPhone compatible.
