Tibetan is much simpler than Devanagari scripts. It has a certain amount
of fixed ligatures, plus a fw rules if one wants to make non-standard
ligatures (practically only used for transcribing Sanskrit texts). I wrote
long time ago otp/ocp for omega to do the stuff. That can easilybe
proted to luatex.

WRT xetex, I don't know much about good otf fonts for Tibetan, but
there are for sure some.

Best wishes

yes I did. It was on display in the

lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of The
