Tamil characters on CSV LoaderEdit

Hi Ganeshk! Long time no see! I have a csv file (UTF-8) made using LibreOffice Calc, with text in 250+ languages, which looks good. However, when I open it in AWB using CSV Loader, some of the language characters (including Tamil) appear as squares. Chinese and other languages work fine. I wonder if you can help pls? PS I can't access the English Wikipedia, so I've come here on Meta. Many thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 09:25, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Any help would be appreciated. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 13:48, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

Whow! When the squares are pasted into WP, the characters appear correct! Sorry for wasting your time! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 14:17, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

@Llywelyn2000: Probably the charset used in AWB cannot show the Tamil characters. Maybe put a request to the AWB pages at enWP asking for the ability for a broader palette.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:28, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
