Praveen P: btw, there is a (ugly) work arround you can do to get timelines with
Malayalam characters.

EasyTimeline generates svg's for all its timelines (which it does not use
whatsoever - their generation is probably a bug). If you find the url of the
png (in the example given:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ml/timeline/3e53b63091049c25cc1bbbbd366bb4a7.png
) change the extension to svg ( so
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ml/timeline/3e53b63091049c25cc1bbbbd366bb4a7.svg
). Save the svg file, in a text editor replace encoding="iso-8859-1" on the
first line with encoding="UTF-8" (the svg part of easytimeline passes wrong
args to ploticus for xmlencoding).Then go through and replace any &amp;nbsp;
with &nbsp; . Upload the resulting file, and you should have a timeline with
the proper internationilized characters.
