I was looking for how to install sinhala unicode fonts for Mac. When I initially checked out about this I could not find this details from Siyabas site by ICTA where it has all other information regarding installing Unicode fonts for different Operating Systems. For OS X (Leopard, Snow Leopard) site did not contain any information. Then through wikipedia article on Sinhala Font Guide, I was able to get a link to download Malithi web sinhala unicode font designed for Mac. So I just thought of posting this few simple steps on how to have sinhala unicode running for a Mac. But still with some rendering problems may be
- Download Malithi web font for Mac from here (.ttf)
- Copy the file to /Library/Fonts folder simple as that
At this point at least now we can see some sinhala web pages but still with some rendering issues for letters with ‘combu’ some times. I will add it here if I find a better solution than this later.
