There is no Pali script as such, though sometimes Pali is written in a
neighbour's script rather than one's own. What's more surprising is
that Pali wasn't regularly written in the Thai script until Rama IV
ordered the change. Instead, the Buddhist script in his domains was the
Khom script (a variety of the Khmer script, with several unencoded
characters for Thai) in the south and the Tai Tham script in the north.
