comment Solfa style music notation (Carnatic)
Lilypond produces excellent music score, but in western staff notation/guitar tab etc. I'm using lilypond for such scores. Indian music notation is not graphic, it's mostly textual. Most folks use a word processor/ spreadsheet to get it done. Problem is the score becomes a 'grid' and 'phrases' are difficult to distinguish. I will add an image and make my point more clear.

comment LaTeX/XeTeX setup Tamil/Indic languages
This page has a code example that works (partially)- tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2009-December/015051.html Letters with dot about (க், ல்) are rendered wrong. TexMaker didn't help much. It wouldn't let me type in Tamil, but I could copy-paste unicode text into it. TexMaker, by default, tries to compile with Latex, I had to compile from command line ($ xelatex <source>)

Will try devanagari first. 'Internal Codes' meaning I should be typing the source with some kind of hex code letter-by-letter? Thanks for the tip.

Thanks Willie. I've installed Tamil packages but couldn't get them work yet. Heard about Xetex's support for Unicode characters. Any idea how to use it in Ubungu? (Guess it should go to another question)
