Mongolian font doesn't display[edit]

Swept in from the pub

I was just editing at Ordos City, and I noticed that the Mongolian name of the city displays only little boxes. If I look at the Wikipedia page, the same text displays just fine, so it's not a matter of my computer missing the fonts. What gives? Texugo (talk) 12:50, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

I got boxes both here and on WP, with current version of either Firefox on Chrome for Ubuntu Linux. Adding the "unifont" package (plane 0 unicode fonts) solved the problem. Pashley (talk) 13:11, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Why would I get boxes here and not on Wikipedia? If their display method is more robust than ours, perhaps we should adopt it. Texugo (talk) 13:19, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia uses w:Template:MongolUnicode to display Mongolian script. It takes the Unicode characters (which you and I see as boxes) and (somehow; I didn't look at the code) renders them in what seems to be a browser-neutral way. You might want to ask at the template talk page or w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Mongols for assistance. Powers (talk) 13:46, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
I have ported this template from Wikimedia Commons, the Mongolian text looks better after using this template.--Great Brightstar (talk) 20:52, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
