TSCII Text Codec

The TSCII codec provides conversion to and from the Tamil TSCII encoding.

TSCII, formally the Tamil Standard Code Information Interchange specification, is a commonly used charset for Tamils. The official page for the standard is at http://www.tamil.net/tscii/

This codec uses the mapping table found at http://www.geocities.com/Athens/5180/tsciiset.html. Tamil uses composed Unicode which might cause some problems if you are using Unicode fonts instead of TSCII fonts.
