In both Tamil and Malayalam, zero was introduced in 19th century.
Now for decades both states in India use the common Hindu-Arabic numbers. Kerala
govt. has actually advised not to use these numbers,
Looking at Tamil 1/2 sign, what is given for Malayalam looks similar also.
So, usage samples with the sign shown in Unicode codechart - is it 0 or 1/2
have to be checked.
Since the majority use in Malayalam, in any case,
is zero (o) only as in all other Indian languages,
full round form 0 will have to be given in the codechart.
More later (have written to Malayalam prof.s)
