TAM:

Based on TAB, TAM (Tamil Monolingual) is a monolingual encoding. Fonts that are based on TAM do not contain Roman alphabets. This format is used mainly for print publishing in Tamil Nadu. While Anjal2000 provides support for typing Tamil text based in TAM, there are no Anjal fonts in this format. You may use

any TAM keyboards.

Unicode:

Unicode is a standard that encompasses

all the characters in all

the scripts in the world. It is the encoding used by modern operating systems like Windows2000, WindowsXp, MacOS X and others. Anjal provides both keyboard and font support (this support has been in Anjal since Jan 2000). However, you will need to run Anjal on a Windows2000 or WindowsXp machine in order to compose Tamil text on Unicode. You may use the fonts to read Unicode text on other versions of Windows. The same Anjal fonts that were encoded for TSCII 1.7 will also render Unicode text in Tamil. Thus, these fonts also begin their names with “TSCu” (like TSCu_InaiMathi).

Murasu-6:

This is an old Murasu encoding that was used in the 80’s by Murasu users in Malaysia. It is included in Anjal to allow these users to work on their old documents without having the change their settings.

Devanagari:

Unicode encoding for Devanagari. No fonts are included in Anjal.

You may use the “Mangal” font that is bundled into Windows2000 and WindowsXp. When this encoding is picked, the keyboard will automatically be switched to Anjal-Indic.

Telugu:

Same as Devanagari. No fonts included.

Malayal

am:

Same as Devanagari. No fonts included.

TSCII 1.6 (old):

The older TSCII encoding. This encoding is supported in the

second edition only for backward compatibility. It is highly recommended that you use TSCII 1.7. Only 3 TSCII 1.6 fonts are bundled into the second edition: InaiMathiTSC, ArulMathiTSC and InaiKathirTSC.

Pull down the combo box and select the character set you want to use. (Note: the words “character set” and “encoding” have been used interchangeably. Although there is a difference in meaning, we can take it to mean the same for the purpose if this document.

The settings you have done above will be the default ones. This will be the settings Anjal with use every time it starts up.

There may be times when you have to change something (especially the encoding) while you are working on a specific document. For example, you may be using TSCII as your default encoding and you get a document from your friend
