typeface reflecting the traditional hand-written style of the Tai Viet script
The original Tai Heritage font was designed to reflect the traditional hand-written style of the Tai Viet script that is treasured by the Tai people of Vietnam. This gives it its angular style and flowing lines, as opposed to the more rounded style used by Lao and some modern versions of Tai Viet.
The current Tai Heritage Pro release is Unicode encoded, based on the Unicode 5.2 standard. It uses either the SIL Graphite technology or OpenType for correct placement of combining marks (vowels and tones).
The Tai Dam, Tai Daeng and Tai Don people who live in northwestern Vietnam and surrounding areas have a long tradition of literacy in the Tai Viet script. Their languages belong to the Tai-Kadai language family and are closely related to Lao.
Font sources are published in the repository and an open workflow is used for building, testing and releasing.
Webfont versions and HTML/CSS examples are also available. The full font sources are publicly available at https://github.com/silnrsi/font-taiheritagepro
