BabelStone Tibetan

Description

BabelStone Tibetan is a Unicode Tibetan font. It is a modification and extension of the Jomolhari font. Jomolhari is a Bhutanese style calligraphic uchen Tibetan script font developed in Bhutan by Christopher J. Fynn, and licensed under the SIL Open Font License (OFL). I would like to express my immense gratitude to Chris for designing such a beautiful font, and releasing it under a free license that allows me to modify it and release it under the BabelStone brand.

BabelStone Tibetan is based on Jomolhari Version alpha 0.003c 2006, which is quite old, and so does not include sixteen characters added to the Tibetan block in Unicode versions 5.1 (2008), 5.2 (2009) and 6.0 (2010). BabelStone Tibetan adds support for these sixteen characters, and also extends the font to cover many additional stack clusters, including non-standard clusters that are used for writing Tibetan shorthand contractions and some unusual clusters that were used for transcribing Tangut. If there are any stack clusters you need that BabelStone Tibetan does not currently support, please let me know by email or on twitter, and I will endeavour to promptly add them to the font.

༄༅། །དབུ་མ་རྩ་བའི་ཚིག་ལེའུར་བྱས་པ་ཤེས་རབ་ཅེས་བྱ་བ་བཞུགས་སོ། །

༄༅། །རྒྱ་གར་སྐད་དུ། །པྲ་ཛྙཱ་ནཱ་མ་མཱུ་ལ་མ་དྷྱཱ་མ་ཀ་ཀཱ་རི་ཀ །བོད་སྐད་དུ། །དབུ་མ་རྩ་བའི་ཚིག་ལེའུར་བྱས་པ་ཤེས་རབ་ཅེས་བྱ་བ། །འཇམ་དཔལ་གཞོན་ནུར་གྱུར་པ་

ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ། །གང་གིས་རྟེན་ཅིང་འབྲེལ་པར་འབྱུང༌། །འགག་པ་མེད་པ་སྐྱེ་མེད་པ། །ཆད་པ་མེད་པ་རྟག་མེད་པ། །འོང་བ་མེད་པ་འགྲོ་མེད་པ། །ཐ་དད་དོན་མིན་དོན་གཅིག་མིན། །

སྤྲོས་པ་ཉེར་ཞི་ཞི་བསྟན་པ། །རྫོགས་པའི་སངས་རྒྱས་སྨྲ་རྣམས་ཀྱི། །དམ་པ་དེ་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ། །བདག་ལས་མ་ཡིན་གཞན་ལས་མིན། །གཉིས་ལས་མ་ཡིན་རྒྱུ་མེད་མིན། །དངོས་པོ་གང་
