Subject: Comment on L2/09-376 Tamil Fractions

The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka has the following observations on the proposal
by Mr. Shriramana Sharma, on encoding Tamil Major Fractions.
1) There are many more numerals (fractions) which should be encoded in Tamil
Unicode. We have currently identified around 20 such fractions, and believe
there may be a few more.
2) We recommend that all the known Tamil fractions be encoded together (with
spaces left for any others which may be identified later), rather than just
the 3 major fractions as requested in L2/09-376.
(3) We suggest that a suitable block in the SMP be allocated for Tamil fractions
since we do have many and they are not used in the contemporary language.
The same block may be used to encode other archaic Tamil signs and symbols.
Sincerely,
Gihan Dias
