Why Malayalam Bloggers are called fools ?

“Don’t be upset by heading. It was an intentional statement. There is a plain simple reason for that. It is…”

“You have started blogging in Unicode before the Govt sites officially shifted to Unicode”

and Why it is a foolishness ?

“Now you have to convert your existing data to the new Unicode”

Unicode is not new, and why we have to convert the data. Unicode Stability Policy assures us backward compatibility.

“Not for Malayalam and Myanmar. Your Chillu sequences will be deprecated. So better convert your data to the new standard”

What if we don’t convert ? We were assured about the data integrity. That’s why we switched from Ascii to Unicode. If we were to use a converter every now and then, why can’t we stay in  ASCII/ISCII etc

“That’s why you are called fools. Why should you believe Unicode Stability Policy when you have no say in any technical matters”

Do we have to wait till the Govt sites accept Unicode to start blogging/wiki-ing ?

“Ask C-DAC”

    The answer regarding chillus i can tell now. If you were using an old anjali font, then you will not suffer with chillus. It had the facility back from 2004!!!(dont ask me how) May the one who prepared it was one able to predict future.
