iAuthor only supports a select number of fonts. It appears the one you want is not currently supported. You should give Apple feedback and request the addition of this font. Alternatively, is there another font that will render your alphabet that iAuthor does support? - Fabe

I have created the book in the ibook author app by installing the font on my mac.
What language exactly are you talking about? Did you activate the proper keyboard layout in system prefs/language & text/input sources? It should not be a problem if you do that.
Normally you do not need to install a font, and doing so is useless because you must use a font that is present on the iPad (users cannot install their own).

PS In addition to languages that use the Latin script, the iPad should be able to display books in Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Ukrainian, Macedonian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Cherokee, Hebrew, Hindi, Thai, Tibetan, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Tamil, Telugu, Sinhala, Oriya, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, Armenian, Georgian, Lao, and Yi.

It is not iAuthor that supports a select number of fonts,but the iPad. I apologize for any confusion. - Fabe

I have a similar question. but, I don't even see the Font option for Tamil Language as Tom Gewecke mentioned.
I know that the users don't have to install Tamil Fonts on their iPad, but, I just can't figure out how to use the same Tamil Font on my Mac while creating the book on iBooks Author.
Please advice. Thanks. - Narayanan N

Apple provides the fonts InaiMathi, Tamil MN, and Tamil Sangam MN. Do you really not see these in Fontbook on your Mac? Or in Format > Font > Show Fonts?
Also you understand that you need to activate the Tamil keyboard layout to type Tamil, not just switch the font, right?
