instead of learning the tamil type writer, i think we could use scim
which is a transliterator that means if u type in english, it would be
automatically transferred to your language. i hope in thamizha.com i
see tamilkey which helps u type in english with slight adjustment in
unicode which will be transliterated to tamil on the fly while typing.
say to type bala in tamil, i can use baalaa which will give u பாலா in
tamil. so it would be easier to learn. also thamizha.com provides
firefox extension to type in tamil.
