Daniels and Bright has a section on Uighur script - something from the same
script history as Mongolian. I don't know how different it is from
Mongolian. (The same family was also used for Oirat and Manchurian, and
these are also discussed in D&B, though again I don't know much about how
similar / different any of these are from one another). Has any proposal
ever been made for this? Can it be considered simply a different writing
system based on the same script as Mongolian (and therefore encoded using
the existing Mongolian characters)?
