Chillus: Yeah, I just read that last night in the V.10 docs. Fix in SVN.

Revisions 3718 and 3720 added glyphs for three chillu characters (m, y, and ). The subtables "'akhn' chillu in Malayālam" and "'haln' chillus in Malayālam-1" should not produce these three glyphs. That ZWJ-based mechanism for chillus is only defined for the five consonants listed in Unicode’s table 12-37 (, n, r, l, and ).

I underestimated the extent of the archaic II foul-up. I think it's fixed now in SVN.

What would I do without you? I have to look right at the glyph, think about how it's curled, and compare that to a description of the other. That is, earlier steps in the visual processing do not tell me the curl is the wrong way. I guess that's dyslexia.

But it's odd this letter, which is evidently a vowel, uses a bit more like a letter r than the letter e.

And I fixed the lookup glitch -- that was a slip of the finger.

And I added the rest of the Unicode 10 glyphs. Serif normal only for now.

Also, ii_archaic_mal is backwards.

Revision 3715 uses U+0D5F where it should use U+0D28.

Made glyphs for the fractions and archaic II. Serif normal only.
