This page is about enabling Tamil support in Plan 9 using TUNE, a new 16 bit encoding scheme. Unlike Unicode, which requires complex glyph subsititution and glyph positioning information to render Tamil, TUNE maps each character to a single glyph. This property of TUNE makes it straight forward to enable Tamil support.
