(synopsis "Meera Inimai Tamil font")
(description "Meera Inimai is a Unicode font for the Tamil Script. Meera
Inimai is a san-serif typeface. It is best used as a screen font for body
text. It is also useful for body text of printed pamphlets or single page
designs. Meera Inimai can be thought of as similar to Helvetica and its
variation Arial. Tamil characters are inherently vertically-elliptical. The
orthography of Roman glyphs of Meera Inimai are also based on this
characteristic so that they sit smoothly with the Tamil glyphs.")
