This is an overview of the currently available Tibetan computer fonts

Fonts compatible with the ISO 10646 / Unicode Standard for encoding Tibetan characters: Tibetan Unicode

OpenType Tibetan Fonts at THDL

On Windows XP & 2000 these fonts currently work with Office 2003 sp1 - though you will also need to install the EWTS EWTS Unicode keyboard or a another Tibetan Input Method. For information on using the font with other applications please see: THDLs Instructions for using Tibetan Unicode Fonts in Windows.

Windows Vista fully supports both fonts without additional software.
