I suppose you are mixing up things. Epiphany is based on mozilla, its
like Galeon maybe with simpler interface.
For its UI ( dialogs, menus ) Epiphany (since its based on gnome 2)
will use gnome font selection methods like anyohter gnome apps, but
for rendering a webpage it will (or should) fall upon mozilla engine
to do it. Now Gnome can render malayalam but not mozilla (it doesnt do
the CTL stuff, just unicode level support). So for Epiphany or for
that matter any browsers based on mozilla, take up the malayalm
support issue on mozilla-i18n (there is already some work on in that
direction, time is right to make the noise there ;).
Gnome-i18n is only for Gnome i18n, displaying websites is a browser
issue not a desktop environment issue. So you can support epiphany &
bug mozilla ppl for malayalam support.
