Hi Philip,

| It seems to me, Shakthi, (and I know nothing about the rules for Tamil
| typography) that XeLaTeX does not know how to hyphenate Tamil words;

I don't want the words to be hyphenated and split across lines.

| perhaps it is impossible, or simply "not done".  So the best I can do
| (and I also do not have your preferred font,

I use fonts-lohit-taml-classical installed on Ubuntu using:

  $ sudo apt-get install fonts-lohit-taml-classical

| Unicode MS) is to set \emergencystretch to a sufficiently large value to
| allow your text to justify without hyphenation :

That is exactly what I wanted, and it worked.

Thanks a lot! Appreciate it.
