    As far as Tamil is concerned it is wrong to have the dotted circle
    introduced. We need to remove the dotted circle from Tamil encoding.

    Also there are many fonts that donot come with a dotted circle included,
    which causes havoc as it hides the tru natre of data (oppose to mistakingly
    inserted dotted circles cause havoc in computing). Ever which way I think
    dotted corcle is a problem than a solution for anythimg.
