Unicode: Public Review issue #71: Malayalam Digits

Please read the details of the issue at Unicode Public Review listing.

On the right, you can see the scanned image of the number symbols which I jotted down in my old note book.

Following are my suggestions for inclusion in Unicode chart:
  1. Shortcuts for numbers 10, 20, .., 90, 100 and 1000. These symbols are very archaic. Please see H. Gundert on this.
  2. The fraction symbols 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4. My notes miss 1/8. I know there is a symbol for 1/8; but don't have a document to show how it looks. These are also very archaic. Please see this IT mission link.
  3. The symbol used in '17-' to mean the date '17th'. In contrast to previous ones, this date related symbol is commonly used. Many existing fonts have this in their glyph set. If at all, some of these number related symbols make it to Unicode chart, this should be the first.
