UTF8 encoded Tibetan text doesn't display correctly (ISO-2022 does)

I have a problem with emacs. It seems that it is not able to display
Tibetan characters correctly if the buffer is utf-8 encoded. Instead of
tibetan characters, we see rectangles as if the font wasn't available.
But others X programs can use it.

What I don't understand is that it is possible to display tibetan
characters when we use MULE on a new buffer that is not unicode
encoded. By default, MULE choose the ISO-2022 encoding and it works.

So, why does it works with iso-2022 (that I never heard about, and
never used) and not utf-8 ?




You can find a tibetan unicode font in this page:
Follow the link <Font & Related Issues> then the link <Tibetan Machine
Uni> in the third paragraph.

Here is some UTF-8 encoded tibetan text if you want to test:
