And Linux fully supports the standard Unicode encoding of the
Sinhalese script. May be there are still some missing letters to
encode, but then it's not too late to encode them. Propose them,
formalize them. Help disambiguating the various cases.

But ask your self why Sinhalese Wikipedia works and us usable in Linux
too... There already exists free OpenType fonts for Sinhalese that are
using the stanadrd Uncode/ISO/IEC 10646 assgnments.

Di you say you can't read the Sinhalese Wikipedia on your Linux machines ?
