Hi, here we can discuss Tamil fonts (typography).
Latha is the default Windows font:
It's nice, large, and therefore, easy to read.
But, there are more beautiful fonts, like Maduram:
the foundry is giving it for free: http://www.kamban.com.au/fonts/maduram.ttf
Monotype fonts:http://www.monotypefonts.com/Library/No ... &lan=tamil
As for commercial fonts, there is Kohinoor Tamil:http://www.indiantypefoundry.com/fonts/kohinoor-tamil/
I like this font, but I don't know its name (the one used on this map), its more than beautiful
