With the availability of Truetype fonts like Mylai, Inaimathi, and Anangu-anjal now it is possible to create various documents in Tamil script. Anjal Tamil enabler program allows you to send e-mails in Tamil script. With the improvement in HTML standards now it is possible to display information on the Web in Tamil script. New techniques allow you to dynamically transfer fonts and thereby obviating the need to have various Tamil fonts placed in the system directory.

With the arrival of Anjal 2.0 now it is possible to compose Tamil messages in the editor boxes of Netscape and explorere browsers. You don't have to do cut and paste. Ms chat makes it possible to chat with your friend in Tamil. Of course it is possible to post messages to the Newsgroup in Tamil script. All these developments have really made it possible and easier to do many thing in the computer and on the Net using Tamil script.
