All the test below require a Unicode enabled computer. See Tibetan Unicode Installation for more information.

Web browser test

The following text is Tibetan Unicode - if your installation is supporting Unicode, the display should match the picture below:

ཨོཾ་ཨཱཿཧཱུྂ་བཛྲ་གུ་རུ་པདྨ་སིདྡྷི་ཧཱུྂ༔

The Unicode text above should resemble the image below:

Note that you can copy to the first mantra as text into the clipboard. By pasting the text into a Unicode aware application you can modify the text. The second mantra is simply an image and cannot be modified.

Things that can go wrong are:

  • you don't have a Tibetan Unicode font installed - only garbage is displayed: Install a Tibetan Fonts.
  • You see Tibetan letters, but the stacks do not display correctly and seem to be smashed - you need to install support for complex scripts as described in Tibetan Unicode Installation.
