# how to typeset document in indian script

Is there an MWE for typesetting indian scripts (like tamil / kannada). There are couple of examples for devanagari scripts. Can i use the same for other scipts.

As long as you have the appropriate fonts, you should be able to use XeLaTeX and the polyglossia package. Assuming that you have fonts that support Tamil already installed on your system (i.e., available to non-TeX applications like Open Office) XeLaTeX should find them automatically.

% !TEX TS-program = XeLaTeX

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setmainlanguage{tamil}
