Multibyte character encodings in legacy Tibetan Fonts and Auto Detection
Toshiya Suzuki (Hiroshima Univ.), Dai Sato (Tohoku Univ. Hosp.)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) For Brahmic scripts used in India, Central and South East Asia,
ISO/IEC 10646 defines the character sets by phonetic decomposition
of Brahmic scripts with refering Indic national standard IS 13194.
These character sets expect the complicated text layout system
to render the coded text for display or printing purpose.
To reduce the implementation cost by reusing Roman text layout system,
there are various non-standardized legacy encoding schemes for Brahmic
In this report, we investigate the legacy encoding schemes for
Tibetan script as an example of northern Brahmic script which uses
many ligatures.
We found legacy encoding system for precomposed Tibetan glyphs.
The glyphset of these encodings are so large that the subsetted font
in the documents are expected to be quite smaller than whole glyph set.
We discuss the encoding detection algorithm by subsetted font.
