    What is this transiitory period being talked about in terms of
    years? How many books were printed with this?
    Any *real* Malayalam books examples, please.
    Btw, do you read Malayalam?

    Have not seen a Malayalam book that uses
    any fraction, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, etc., etc.,
    for zero (0) glyph.
