Solaris & Tamil - Part II

More updates. I have, with the help of OpenSolaris/Sun folks, have successfully created a Tamil locale for Solaris (10). Now, I can set the locale (in my .dtprofile) to ta_IN.UTF-8 and can see the GNOME (JDS) desktop in Tamil :-) (well most of it).
Though I see a similar rendering issue in GNOME terminal. (swapping of characters), while all other apps (panel on menu items, metacity on window titles) seem to render them okay.
Next step is to get the X11/Openwin part of the localisation, I guess.

Screenshot

Contains: Gedit with a Tamil text, Firefox (built with --enable-pango), Run dialog, GNOME-terminal (compare the date output with the one on the panel on top).

Comments:

Keenly interested in typesetting Tamil using XeTeX. Your example seemed excellent... Looking forward for your suggestions on uni-code editor to be used which goes well with XeTeX. (Have been using LaTeX for a while but totally new to XeTeX)
