Google and a Tibetan Font

Postby Jinzang » Wed Aug 13, 2014 2:22 am

Google recently sent out a PR blast about a new font it is creating clled Noto, which is intended to cover all of Unicode. Unfortunately, it does not cover Tibetan yet, and I opened an issue about that. Yesteday I received a reply to the issue, which said

Despite the fact that Tibetan has less than 255 characters in Unicode it requires from a couple of thousand to many thousands of glyphs to properly represent and experts are not that readily available. So, actually not that surprising.


I am hoping someone here can politely suggest to Google where they might find the resources to develop a Tibetan font by adding their comments to the issue.
Lamrim, lojong, and mahamudra are the unmistaken path.
