Malayalam font for Mac

So, after all these years, we have a Malayalam font that works in Apple's macs. Well, almost. My brother and I have been working on getting Rachana to work, and it looks quite good now. The goal has been to make a font that can use every glyph provided by Rachana. You can see in the screen capture that it seems to work quite well in Firefox, but not so well in Safari (where the kind of chillu usage in wikipedia is causing some trouble).

Update (Sep 7, 2009): You can find the alpha version of the font here.
