As I mentioned in the previous mail, Padma does two completely
different things and you are mixing the two up. The auto
transformation is *only* for pages that have dynamic fonts, the page
you refer to has no dynamic fonts and so no there is nothing to do.
You have to use the manual transformer whenever you want to transform
from transliteration schemes. I agree things like these need to go
into a manual or help page.

You can right click on a site and change the output script. That is
the only option provided because that is the only thing that makes
sense there. You may want to fix any typos instead of typing the whole
thing again if you made a mistake with the URL and will be a good

Script list allows you to choose the script to which you want the
dynamic font in the pages for that URL to be transformed. Default says
do the regular transform - Eenadu pages are in Telugu, Dainik Bhaskar
is in Devanagari etc. If you want to read Bhaskar in Malayalam, you
will pick it there.

As I explanied above, it makes no sense to have them here.

You have to do this manually.
