Is the Unicode 4.1 character name for 0FD0 correct ?
0FD0 is named TIBETAN MARK BSKA- SHOG GI MGO RGYAN in Unicode 4.1.
But see http://www.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n2694.pdf, which mentions elsewhere "bka’ shog gi mgo rgyan" (this must be a transliteration, see
below for the pronunciation) as does http://www.tibet.dk/pktc/download/TD_Tib_Signs3.pdf, page 4. No "s" in the first syllable.
Compare to 0F0A TIBETAN MARK BKA- SHOG YIG MGO also used in Bhutan. Note the absence of an "s" in the first syllable.
An additional hint of a potential problem is given by the pronunciation of these two characters : 0F0A (BKA-) is apparently pronounced "ka sho
yik go" while 0FD0 (BSKA-) is pronounced "ka sho gi go gyen", both "ka". I understand that, given the amount of Tibetan silent letters, two
different syllables could be pronounced the same way. Just checking.
