RE: some malayalam fonts have issues...
First of all thanks for the reply:

Sorry that i did't mention the font.
I used "ML-TTAathira" and more
in many other applications like libre office and "type it" malayalam writer.
The font has no issues with those applications and it is complete too.

I also noted the following issue of (weird text ) as atached image:

This appears only in Gimp.

Have you cjeck the font is complete (works correctly for this character in other applications such as word processors)?

If I copy/paste this from Firefox to Gimp text tool with a font that looks like it will support Indian alphabets, I get this, so everything is consistent on that end:



(edit: same result with this font)

The character in your screenshot from Office looks different.

Referencing: http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0D00.pdf

What you posted above is at least two characters (a bit like ligatures in Latin typography), and if I insert a space in the middle, i get DDA+Virama on the left, and TTA on the right...
