A call to all MalluBloggers....

Dear Mallu Blogger,
You are cordially and politely invited to start creating PURE MALAYALAM (UNICODE) Blogs and thus join the MalluBloggers Club out there...!

ശുദ്ധമലയാളത്തില്‍ ബ്ലോഗു ചെയ്യൂ... യുണികോഡ്‌ മലയാളം പ്രചരിപ്പിക്കൂ...
If you can read the above words in perfect malayalam (without any apparent spelling mistakes,) then you are almost ready!

If not,
1.Get anjaliOldLipi font and install.(http://www.chintha.com/fonts/anjali.exe)
2. In your browser, set Encoding to UTF-8
3. In your browser, Use AnjaliOldLipi as the preferred font for viewing Malayalam Web pages.

If you use a Windows PC,
1. Use preferrably WinXP SP2 and IE 6+.
2. In IE menu, (:View:Encoding:) Select UTF-8
3. For setting your preferred font for Malayalam language as AnjaliOldLipi ,
inside IE Menu:(: Tools:Internet Options:General Tab:Fonts Button: Language Script: Pick Malayalam and choose AnjaliOldLipi.

Now you must be able to read pure (and universal) Malayalam text on your PC!

Once you are ready with this, think of creating your own Malayalam Text.

Use 'Varamozhi' from http://varamozhi.sourceforge.net/
You can type in malayalam words in english letters (like 'amma', 'malayaaLam' etc.). The program will simultaneously show you the equivalent Malayalam words in the other window!

And then use UTF-8 Export to convert the Malayalam text to Unicode.
You can clip-copy-paste this text to your new Malayalam Blog!

If you face difficulty, just post a comment in any of the MalluBoggers (See a list at http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~mp/malayalam/blogs/ ). Someone will be glad to help you!

Come on!
We are all waiting there for you!
