Are you a Sinhalease?

Posted in Thoughts by Nalaka(නාලක) on December 6, 2007

Are you Sinhalease?
Are you a Sinhalease and computer literate?
If you are, can you read the rest of this line after the colon: ‍කදිමයි. ඔබ සිංහලෙන් වැඩ කරනවා!

If you can’t, I think you should better re-evaluate your answer…

Here is some help on redeeming yourself…

    As Nalaka said – “You should be sinhalese and computer literate” to read that.

    about the first image – though the letters seem to be rendered differently(not incorrectly) in different browsers, it doesn’t mean that the sinhala unicode system is not good. We should be grateful for the sinhala unicode system. The different rendering merely suggests that the browsers render the letters differently. And I have to say that it is certainly not a security problem. The String is the same and, in turn the binary code must be the same. It would be nice if all of us, sinhalese start using the scheme, and try to popularize it for the development of the language, without trying to find mistakes in it.

    the second image – I am using linux and open office. And it renders all the letters nicely. So the fault is with the microsoft office software – but i have seen sinhala working perfectly in microsoft office.

    As nalaka said if you are not able to see the letters you should better re-evaluate your answer.

    And I wonder why you are trying to view the same article on two different browsers! If you are able to view sinhala correctly in a single browser (It works perfectly on firefox – and it is certainly the best browser out there) why try to view it in other browsers?

    This shows that your sole attempt is “trying to find mistakes in the sinahala unicode scheme and to stop the development of it”.

    The reference to anuradha’s blog is really good.
