Adhawin Font for Sun Solaris

Dear Members,

Starting today all Tamil texts rendered in Adhawin font at
http://www.SriVaishnava.org can be viewed on a PC or
Sun workstations running Solaris 2.5 versions of Netscape.

I have converted the texts for Vaazhi Thirunaamam and
Sri Manavaala Maamuni's works. I will be updating the
works of Sri Pillai Lokcaachaarya this week.

The Adhawin font for Win 95 (TTF font) can be downloaded
from: http://venus-qe7.griffin.peachnet.edu/abirami/adhawin.html

For Unix BDF fonts, please send me an email and I can send a tar
file with instructions. Depending on the number of requests,
i'll either email the tar file or put on the WEB for download.

I have tested the font on Solaris runing Netscape 3, 4.06 and 4.5.
There are few options that need to be set in verions 4*. The font
set for Unix is simple and may not display bold faces very well.

thanks

Venkatesh Elayavalli
