Tamil question

Hey, I've been learning how to write/read Tamil script, and I'd like to know
where on the net (or a book) I can learn the history of Grantha script, what
the Tamil version of the Sanskrit letter "ks.a" (s. = s retroflex), and
whether or not the script would be more correctly called a syllabry, an
abjad, or something else.  (It seems pretty complex!)

I wonder what happened to R. Skrintha; where could he be...


P.S. My list name was supposed to be my full name in Tech -- but it didn't
come out right :(
