Right - since the time I made the script I gained access to a lot of hPhags-pa texts, but I included that fragment for sentimental reasons...

Just any left-to-right editor that can handle my Denden font - which excludes a lot of the current crop of Linux stuff, because those generally have a bit of trouble with recognizing fonts.
