    Andrew C. West offers test pages for both Mongolian and Manchu.

    These pages have some of the technical background that you seek
    concerning variation selectors and Mongolian, as well as explore
    many issues concerning Unicode Mongolian.

    There is some good information about Variation Selectors on the
    Mongolian page under the heading
    "Mongolian Free Variaton Selectors".
    (Hello Andrew, ...Typo alert!)

    Unicode for Mongolian is working perfectly on many platforms,
    (smile) but only if we're discussing Cyrillic script.

    Best regards,
