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.
