Mon pro­vides Mon­go­lian and Manju sup­port for the / com­mu­nity.

Mon­go­lian is a lan­guage spo­ken in North East Asia, namely Mon­go­lia and the In­ner Mon­gol Au­tonomous Re­gion of China. To­day, it is writ­ten in an ex­tended Cyril­lic al­pha­bet in Mon­go­lia whereas the Uighur writ­ing con­tin­ues to be in use in In­ner Mon­go­lia, though it is also, legally speak­ing, the of­fi­cial writ­ing sys­tem of Mon­go­lia.

Manju is an­other lan­guage of North East Asia, be­long­ing to the Tun­gu­sic branch of the Al­taic lan­guages. Though it is hardly spo­ken nowa­days, it sur­vives in writ­ten form as Manju was the na­tive lan­guage of the rulers of the Qing dy­nasty (1644–1911) in China. Large quan­ti­ties of doc­u­ments of the Im­pe­rial Archives sur­vive, as well as some of the finest dic­tio­nar­ies ever com­piled in Asia, like the Pen­ta­glot, a dic­tio­nary com­pris­ing Manju, Ti­betan, Mon­go­lian, Uighur and Chi­nese. Mon pro­vides all nec­es­sary char­ac­ters for writ­ing stan­dard Mon­go­lian in Cyril­lic and Clas­si­cal (aka Tra­di­tional or Uighur) writ­ing, and Manju as well as translit­er­ated Ti­betan texts, for which pur­pose a num­ber of ad­di­tional char­ac­ters was cre­ated.

In Mon, both Mon­go­lian and Manju are en­tered in ro­man­ized form. The re­translit­er­a­tion (from Latin in­put to Mon­go­lian and Manju out­put) is com­pletely re­al­ized in / so that no ex­ter­nal pre­pro­ces­sor is re­quired.

Please note that most of the en­hanced func­tions of Mon re­quire a work­ing e- en­vi­ron­ment. This is es­pe­cially true when com­pil­ing doc­u­ments with Mon­go­lian or Manju as the main doc­u­ment lan­guage. It is rec­om­mended to choose pdfe­la­tex as the re­sult­ing PDF files are truly portable. Ver­ti­cal text gen­er­ated by Mon is not sup­ported in DVI.
