Hm, but it would be good if you could tell FontForge to autohint the glyphs
because non-Fedora distributions are also using the Lohit fonts. Frankly, I'm
also using the Lohit fonts when I boot up into Windows XP! So I would prefer
the hinting to *not* be distro-dependent.

Now I have checked whether all the requested changes are done and I observe
that the glyph for TAMIL NUMBER ONE THOUSAND is as yet unchanged in both Tamil
normal and Tamil Classical fonts. Please see the relevant glyph in attachment

Next, I also note that the glyphs for ONE HUNDRED and ONE THOUSAND have moved
somewhat downwards in both fonts. Please correct them to their original

Do you want me to file a separate bug for the one symbol pending UTC editorial
