How to Read / Write Telugu in Mac OSX

Indic fonts do not automatically show up in any of the browsers in Mac OSX. Probably Steve Jobs is not concerned about Indic languages, it's a joke, never mind.

So, you need to configure some settings. Here are the steps to read Telugu on a Mac.

1. Download the Mac version of Pothana font by clicking here.
2. Copy or place it in ~/Library/Fonts/ folder.
3. Restart your browser. Bingo! That's all you are supposed to do; to read a web-page which has telugu (Unicode).

I recommend you to install Padma (add-on) from here if you are using Firefox. It helps you read eenadu.net.

Writing

Of course, you can write using Lekhini or you can also try out Pramukh Type Pad an amazing add-on for Firefox from Vishal Monpara.

I recommend you to ask etelugu at help@etelugu.org if you have any issues or even me at vimal@teluguthesis.com .

I know that I'm posting this as a forum topic. But I'm expecting etelugu.org admins to link this post in the helpcenter .
I would also recommend etelugu.org admins to store the ttf file I have mentioned above in etelugu's server, as the source server seems not very much active.
