[smc-discuss] Encoding of an online version of a malayalam bible

I was looking at a Malayalam version of the bible at

I was surprised to find that the Malayalam text that I copy from there is
actually what appeared to be random Latin characters.

For example, in the above link, the word "ആമുഖം" is copied as "BapJw".

But there is some pattern. Like

അ = A
ആ = B
ഇ = C
ഉ = D

Could this be due to some specific font being used?

Any idea?

Thanks and regards,
