I find the right hand side much better. I think that is true Malayalam. The left hand side seems like a bastardised version. :-)
Frankly it took me quite some time to figure out what you were saying. Phew!
I really thought you were nitpicking but later understood that you certainly have a point.
Anyway how is it that my firefox renders it so perfectly? I have not installed any font. What is the magic?
Is everyone else also able to view?
Localization is a huge topic and I never understood anything. :-)
