Hi,

You're right that there is a problem here. The MG and MGPP components of
Greenstone have a file called unitool.c/unitool.cpp, which includes
lists of Unicode characters that are considered letters, digits, spaces,
etc. Unfortunately these lists haven't been updated for some time, and
don't include the Traditional Mongolian characters. Because of this,
Greenstone will throw away your search terms because it can't find any
letters or digits in them.

Unfortunately we're on the verge of releasing Greenstone v2.71, and
probably won't have time to fix this problem prior to the release. We'll
try to fix it for Greenstone v2.72; in the mean-time, you can always
edit the code yourself if you have the programming knowledge.

Regards,

Michael
