    Actually I wasn't; I was referring to an in-house project at our
    institute for Central Asian Studies, a derivative of the fonts from Newer
    versions use "proper" Unicode Tibetan codepoints instead, for obvious
    interoperability reasons.

    The underlying plain text is perfectly Unicode conformant; after all,
    it's only Latin, and the standard isn't concerned about glyphs and their
    meaning. I guess this is "nonconformant" only in that it somehow defeats
    the purpose of Unicode.
