Thank you. I am responsible for the section on Mongolian, so if you
have any specific questions about how Unicode Mongolian works please
feel free to contact me off-list.

That is correct. Although theoretically Mongolian could work correctly
on Windows XP with a smart Mongolian font and a dumb rendering engine,
in practice the cleverness involved in rendering Mongolian correctly
is shared between the rendering engine (Uniscribe) and the font, and
only in Vista do you have both a version of Uniscribe that supports
Mongolian and a functional Mongolian font ("Mongolian Baiti").
