We really must help U. Köln offer their Tamil files on the Web instead of
(or at least in addition to) their Gopher server.

Unitype Global Office provides fonts and input facilities for Tamil through
Microsoft Office, including Word97. Alis Tango browser can correctly
display Tamil. I have downloaded Avvaiyar's Athichoodi in Tamil and English
from the Web at and printed it on
an HP Laserjet for a Tamil co-worker who tells me that it came out right.

I suggest that you look at the Tamil pages which exist, starting with

> Human Languages Page
>nguages+and+Literature%5c%5c0Tamil Languages and Literature, Tamil

and these results from there and from a Yahoo! search.

and ask the people there how they do it.
