missing contents while converting

I  tried libpagemaker in libre office and scribus. but it fails to detect ascii encoded malayalam language. when i convert the ascii text to unicode malayalam some texts are missing. could you fix this ? 

I included a sample pagemaker with Ascii malayalam in it. also original pagemaker content In Libre office.

pls see the below image to see the difference.

the problem is with extended ASCII. libpagemaker not taking extended ascii charecters.
