    Doesn't mean they can read them. Quite a few Thais, even including some who
    speak enough English to chat, don't know the Roman letters, although all
    Thais are exposed to Roman letters outside school. As a trivial example, I
    am regularly exposed to Chinese and Japanese on the Solaris CDE welcome
    screen, but I read very little of either.
