4/ I wonder how other Tibetan symbols that haven't been assigned individual key positions by EWTS are going to be inputted via Tise. My suggestion is to assign a pop-up selection window function to backslash and/or another unused key that can be found on Kbd_US as well as on all European & CJKV keyboards.

Windows Charmap is pretty useful for this ....

Many of these symbols are almost never going to be required by the average user. In fact I'm sure many of these are going to be, more often than not, used in non-traditional or inappropriate ways. Several characters are so infrequent that the majority of users don't know what they are for.

There are plenty of infrequent characters in the Windows ANSI set that are not usually *directly* accessible from US / Western European keyboards [ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â â â Â â ] - and people are content to use Windows Charmap or Word's "Insert Symbol for these. Why do *all* infrequent Tibetan characters need to be *directly* accessible from EWTS / TISE?
