Tibetan?

Took my iLiad along to take notes at a talk given by a Tibetan Buddhist monk. After the talk he approached me and asked what I had been using for a notepad. He was fascinated and asked for a demo. Last night I received a call from an assistant of his asking where to look on the net for e ink devices and asking if he could load Tibetan documents generated on a computer onto it. Well how would I know. So thats my question.

I'll reveal my own ignorance by admitting that I have absolutely no idea what language they speak in Tibet -- what sort of character set do they have?

PDF files with embedded fonts should work regardless, but I don't know beyond that. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I know what's involved in changing fonts on the iLiad. I recall that iRex can switch a "standard" iLiad over to a "Chinese Language" unit via their IDS downloads, but I don't know how far that gets you ....

Tibetan usually uses an indic script. Tibetan isn't the same as Chinese, but a system that can support Chinese is probably supporting Unicode and at least is supporting multibyte characters, so I'm pretty sure the Tibetan documents would be ok, once the fonts are loaded. Here's a sample, in case someone has a chance to check: དབུ་ཅན་

My what a pretty language, thanks for the link nekokami, I don't think I'm likely to learn Tibetan (looks like Oracle and .NET is my next "language" project), but the script really is pretty.

Thanks everyone for the info. I will pass it on to Geshe Phende (the monks title and name). It is a pretty language, I agree.
