Subject: Re: [tamilinix] Steps for installing Tamil Locale in Redhat Linux
I cant bear to see my blunder still continuing. When I
started translating, I came across the text 'The Quick
Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dogs Back' as the
example text when choosing a font.
In case some of you didnt know, this sentence has all
of the english alphabets, so you get a quick preview
of all the letters.
I couldnt think nor had the skill to come up with an
equivalent Tamil sentence.
Now, could any of you come up with a Tamil sentence
that gives the user a preview of all (not possible,
but mostly used) tamil letters? Any takers.
PS: 'yaathum uurae yaavarum kaelir', IMHO, is a
religion by itself. If only everyone followed this
religion, there will be no war/quarrels and no money
8. In Kde Menu, goto Preferences-> LooknFeel ->
Fonts and change
all the fonts (atleast General and Menu fonts) to
font. Tamil fonts are the ones which contain 'tsc'
in their name
and show the phrase 'yaadhum oorey yaavarum kelir'
in tamil in
the example box.
