    A professor of Malayalam sent me
    a link to a detailed transliteration document for Malayalam.
    Please take a look at:

    Note that Malayalam digit zero, introduced
    around or after 1850, is in accord with
    all other Indian languages' zero (o) including
    the Tamil script which is much closer.

    The representative glyph for Zero (o)
    used extensively by native Malayalam speakers
    can be placed in the Malayalam code chart

    If any documents are needed to change the
    codechart Malayalam digit zero glyph, we can
    supply them.
