(moving this answer to the discussion about the website translation, to 
avoid confusion with the program translation).

Let me see if we can get this right: I created three tests to see how we 
can solve it.
This is the homepage text (main body only) as it is in SVN. You say this 
is broken. Needless to say, I trust you on this, since I can't read Tamil.
This is the homepage text (main body only) as it is in SVN. I added your 
TTF font in the same directory, doesn't seem to make a difference.
This is the homepage text (main body only) with an HTML <link> directive 
to import the file , that in 
turn defines the Tamil TTF font with @font-face and applies it to 
paragraphs (for this initial test this is enough). This looks different 
than #1 and #2 on my system.

Now, is test-3 a proper rendering of Tamil as you would like to see it? 
If it is, we can implement the change on the whole site (the font you 
supplied can be freely used and redistributed); the only issue would be 
that apparently Internet Explorer does not support @font-face with TTF 
fonts, but this would simply mean that Internet Explorer users will 
continue to see the site as it is now.
