Here's how it works: there are three factions involved. The OS and
rendering-engine developers, the editor/processor/input developers,
and the font developers. Each faction considers that the fancy stuff
needed for Mongolian rendering should properly be handled through
a combination provided by the other two factions.
Seriously, it's my understanding that implementation guidelines
for Mongolian script and Unicode are still being worked out.
Aside from experimental set-ups, it's unlikely that anyone can
yet correctly (or, even reasonably) display the Mongolian text
on Andrew C. West's test pages.
