Regular reader Tom asks:

One thing Vista does which nothing else can, as far as I know, is input Traditional Mongolian. There's no info yet on the keyboard layout used for Mongolian (Mongolian) on the Vista Internationalization pages. Anyplace I can find it?

Thanks for the help!

I am sure that the information will make it up to the website eventually, but in the meantime, as always, the best answer here is Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator!

Just install it, choose File|Load Existing Keyboard... from the menu, and then choose the Mongolian (Mongolian Script) layout!

You may want to increase the font size too, as I did for the screenshots below:

Easy! :-)

Very nice, Thanks!   Now all I need is that font....

It comes with Vista. :-)

I'd be curious to know whether Vista's browser or text editors will in fact display Mongolian connected and somewhat correctly.  Here is a test page if you have an opportunity to try sometime:
