No sorry...the tamil text is showing up as ASCII garbage here.  That's why I asked for link to a sample page, so it doesn't get munged in translation by posting it here.

I've played with it and I don't think there is a way to do this in Dreamweaver.  You may have to use a third party text editor to get what you want.
