Sri Lanka idn ccTLDs

I notice that there are now a reasonable number live Sri Lankan IDNs eg

The Parliament of Sri Lanka

Sinhala: http://වෙබ්.පාර්ලිමේන්තුව.ලංකා/
Tamil: http://தளம்.பாராளுமன்றம்.இலங்கை/

For Safari I needed to whitelist Sinhala in IDNScriptWhiteList.txt in order to have Unicode form displayed.

Is that Safari on a PC or Mac? I thought you Loughborough guys were Mac guys? It worked straight away on my Mac / Safari combo.

What I don't like is their home / splash page where it has clickable links saying:

-----------
In order to view Sinhala and Tamil web sites correctly, you will need to download and install Sinhala,Tamil Fonts in your computer.
----------

Thing is, it has no idea whether you have those fonts installed already, so loads of visitors will end up wasting time clicking through to places to install fonts already on their system. Visitors to a Sri-lankan IDN domain should be assumed to have Sri-Lankan fonts installed right, makes sense? Such links certainly shouldn't be on the splash page, just makes the site a big turn off.
