Could you please test this file http://bookini.pl/filestat.php?file=...157.prc&id=184 ? I am very much interested in how the title of the book is displayed by Kindle 3 in the list of books and when the book is opened. The text of the book should be OK, like it is with Kindle 2. It is only the titles where Kindle 2 has problems with displaying some native characters.

As you can see there are some Chinese glyphs that didn't display. Other than that unicode seems to be OK.

That to me implies that they are user generated characters. Ideographs that are so rare that they aren't included in the character set defined by Unicode.
Someone who reads Chinese is better equipped to make an educated guess as to what character might fit the empty square, and if that would be covered by a user defined Hanzhi.

I would really like to convert files with transliterated Sanskrit to Kindle, and so far it wasn't possible, but now I see a bright future, at least for Kindle 3.

Amazon should also fix it for Kindle 2, at least the one they call "International"... It can't be that hard.

UPDATE:

I just found out it actually works already both on Kindle 2 and 3!!!
The problem was simply that Calibre apparently is not converting my RTF file to MOBI properly. When I use Mobibook Creator instead, and throw in a file I made in wordpad, the Kindle shows ā, ṛ, ś, ṇ etc. properly.

Kindle 2 even supports more Latin unicode characters than Windows XP's fonts. But unfortunately no Devanagari अणऊ, neither on Kindle 2 nor 3.
