A Proposal for
A Tamil Standard Code For Information Interchange - TSCII
Annex I - Code Mapping Table TSCII <-> Unicode



Code Mapping/Correspondance between the TSCII-based tamil
characters (version 1.7) and Unicode (v 2.0) Standard

The entire tamil characters/alphabet set can be generated by combined used of one/two/three glyphs shown in the glyph encoding standard table/chart (Fig.1)
The following table has been set up using a monospaced font.
So please use such a fixed-width font for neat screen display/print
------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Tamil alphabet             |   8-bit TSCII       | unicode 2.0

tamil uyir letter au       |     #182            | U-0B94
tamil uyir letter ak/h/q   |     #183            | U-0B94


Please take note that in TSCII version 1.6 first introduced in 1998 
tamil uyir letter "i" was placed at #173. In TSCII 1.7, though this 
glyph has been kept at its slot of #173 for backward compatibility 
reasons but its usage has been deprecated.  All Tamil softwares 
need to take care of this dual presence of "i" glyph.
