    What language and what font are you talking about exactly?

    You can't use latin hacks like Bamini.  You have to use a standard Unicode font, like the InaiMathi font provided with OS X, and input it with the Tamil keyboards provided in system preferences/language & text/input sources.  If you have problems doing that, just post again with details.  You may need a special version of InDesign to support it, I don't know.  Apple's Pages app supports it fine.

    For info on how to do Unicode Tamil in Windows InDesign, you should consult the Adobe sites and forums and search Google as well:

    You should be aware that if you do not have a Mac, you cannot submit your book directly to the iBookstore, you will have to use an Aggregator to do it for you.

    PS Since you will have to use an Aggregator, you may wish to contact them, since they have their own requirements about the format they accept, etc.

    I have Unicode software, but I don't know how to bring that software link into InDesign. Do you have any idea how to install into InDesign?

     

    No, this is a forum for Apple products.  You need to ask the people at Adobe or use their forums for the Windows version of InDesign.
