Tibetans undertake Herculean tusk

Although my English is bad enough, I can't resist quoting these sentences:

The result of this Herculean tusk gave birth of Tibetan Buddhist canons in 13th century.

Tibetans developed a literary language from the 7th century on wards.

The site is otherwise informative (if you know how to read it) and written with good will and dedication.

isnt it time that pechas went the way of birch bark scrolls? I love whats in them as much as the next Tibet weenie, but lets face facts: western book technology is simply way better and I for one await the day when all Tibetan texts are printed in western formats with exotic things like..... an index!
