The Tibetan/Himalayan Library's Wylie Converter seems to work much better, since the one above puts lots of unnecessary spaces between syllables, making it look like they follow English character/word spacing conventions rather than Tibetan.

It lists several Tibetan fonts, let's one change the text size, and can even back-convert Tibetan characters (Uchen) into Wylie, too. Familiarity with Extended Wylie helps, especially when it comes to special characters like in Tibetanized Sanskrit mantras.

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme
