    java, dos, utf, and swing are four differing aspects of how a string is printed or shown, is tamil a language of a nation or a dos mode character set or what actually is it?

    "amma", as shown, will print and save to file and dispaly in swing. Your code probably should work in the Locale of your computer's settings. Java compiler only recognize a limited set of characters.
