Unresolved issues in Anjali Unicode

(Modified after Kevin's reply on 02 Mar '05)
  1. Lya = ള്യ
  2. ntya = ന്റ്യ
  3. zhya = ഴ്യ
  4. Rya = റ്യ
  5. kutyaaTi = കുറ്റ്യാടി
  6. strong - സ്റ്റ്രോംഗ്
  7. yDs = യ്ഡ്സ്‌ as we write AIDS
  8. NThro = ണ്ഠ്രൊ (could be Windows's usp10.dll problem)
  9. kgko = ക്ഗ്കൊ
  10. ktro = ക്റ്റ്രൊ (could be Windows's usp10.dll problem)
  11. Dchka = ഡ്ച്ക
  12. Nchko = ണ്‍ച്കൊ
  13. tnjnjto = റ്റ്ഞ്ഞ്റ്റൊ
  14. khta = ഖ്റ്റ
  15. Dgtr^ = ഡ്ഗ്റ്റൃ
  16. phplu = ഫ്പ്ലു
  17. kthho = ക്ഥൊ
  18. Symbol of വ in ന്വ should go down and left a bit. Otherwise it can be confused with മ്പ.
  19. Uneven space after characters. Specifically after കു and മ. See സകുമയരല
  20. How do we output archaic Malayalam symbols for 1/4, 1/8, nu~ (as in 10-nu) etc. Will the private space in Unicode be useful?
  21. ഘ should be like പ, on the line. So ഘ should go down a bit.
  22. ഔ should not have the െ symbol in the left (eg: കൌ). 'AU length-marker' is just for creating that symbol alone in all kinds of fonts. Or think it this way - if there a AnjaliNewLipi how would you avoid െ symbol in the left.
  23. ഗ്ധ - If there there is no കൂട്ടക്ഷരം like this in Malayalam, why would Anjali have it?
  24. ദ്മ കൂട്ടക്ഷരം is not present. It is just small മ under ദ.
  25. ഴ്ത്ത, ഴ്വ, ട്ടക്ഷരം is not present. It is again just small ത്ത under ഴ.
  26. ത്‌പ കൂട്ടക്ഷരം is not present.
  27. Do you know about a പ്പ being written with a tilda over പ ? Personaly I prefer that than small പ below.
  28. in ല്പ conjuct, the subscript പ should get aligned with ല. (eg: അല്പം)
  29. The size of small ഭ in ബ്ഭു, ബ്ഭൂ etc is very small so that it is difficult to read. I know the smaller glyph of ഭു below ബ can not be too big. But can't the ബ be compressed a bit heightwise?
  30. ഋ symbol part of വൃ and നൃ are too elongated. For me it will look better if it were little more round.
  31. Implement C2-conjoint ligature draft http://www.unicode.org/review/pr-37.pdf
  32. Single quote overlaps the ചന്ദ്രക്കല. Example: 'അവന്'
  33. പ്രശ്ലേഷത്തിനു് വേണ്ടി തൽക്കാലം ദേവനാഗിരിയിലെ `അവഗ്രഹ` ഉപയോഗിക്കൂ (U+093D)


Sunny's keymap (ver 2.5.1) issues

  1. Punctuations '`({[-=& after a chillu forming consonant does not produce chillu eg: try n- or n'
  2. here is one backspace rule: ചില്ല്‌ + backspace -> nothing
  3. another rule: consoant + virama + backspace -> nothing
  4. tool needs a name
  5. web page should have more prominant download link


Suggestions to Peringodan's Keymap

Following comments are about version 1.0.1:
  1. ക്ക + bksp => ക്ക് ; but ക + bksp => removes the char. Is this consistent?
  2. 'c' becomes 'ൿ’ instead of 'ക്’
  3. ചന്ദ്രക്കല ഒറ്റയ്ക്കിടാൻ വയ്യ. Tilda ഒറ്റയ്ക്കിട്ടാൽ ~ കിട്ടും :(
  4. mappings for 'ttha', 'ccha' etc missing. Refer bottom of this file.
  5. noway I can write 'വാഗ്‌രൂപം'
