I'm seeing a little bit of weird behaviour in the Tamil lanaguage.
Check out the subject line on the message page, which is fine. Versus
the same subject line on the index page, which is rendering
incorrectly due to a UTF-8 character being split by whitespace. (This
is the lastest message from 2009/03/21). Basically, we get different
results between $SUBJECTNA$ and $SUBJECT$, with the former being
correct. The more-or-less raw message can be obtained from the
Pipermail archive, or I can supply it.

I see no difference in the message subject in question.

I first installed Tamil fonts on my linux system so the text will
render using a proper font.  I can see no difference.

However, since I know nothing of Tamil and not trusting that my
eye can accurately determine any differences, I extracted the text
from the index file and the message file and did a cmp on them: no
difference.  I.e.  I did a byte-for-byte comparison of the subject
text and there is no difference.

Could you elaborate more on what difference you are actually seeing?

Could the problem be due to how your browser/display is configured?
Do you have the proper fonts installed?

If you can provide a message the generates a byte-for-byte difference
for the same subject text, I can examine further.
