Template too large[edit]

IMO this template is too large. Perhaps it makes more sense to add the family tree to Brahmic family, and replace this with a saller, horizontal navigational box (or perhaps just leave it at the 'writing systems' navigational box. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joost (talkcontribs) 12:35, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Please correct the tree[edit]

Oriya language or script is a descendant of Brahmi script but not a descendant of Proto-Bengali script, please see the following categorization which says that Kalinga script is the precursor of modern Oriya script.

As far as I know, Oriya is a northern script, not a southern one. Oriya has a much closer relationship with Bengali and Devanagari, rather than Telugu or any other southern script. The Wikipedia article says the same. This mistake should be corrected. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriya_alphabet#Comparison_of_O.E1.B9.9Biy.C4.81_script_with_its_neighbours 117.197.78.255 (talk) 07:47, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
