Dear Anuradha

Thank you for the links and introducing my site to your friends.

The problem I find is the "TEXT" data will not be compatible with other Operating Systems.
This is simply because the SLS 1134 -  unicode do not have all the sinhala characters in its matrix.

This is the only issue I have.
We all got to join and make voice to include all individual characters into the SLS 1134.

Just beause a keyboard having a key cap character locations will not image the language  without the OS support
If any OS supports a particular language you can use any keyboard to access it.
Key caps are just a guide line for the humans.
You can now understand how the public is fooled by our  IT guys.

also be interested in what Lanka Linux User Group has been doing
during the past.

I am CCing the Sinhala GNU/Linux list.  Those who don't know Donald,
