Description

The Dai Banna SIL Fonts are the Unicode version of their predecessor, SIL Dai Banna Fonts.  Apart from a few additional characters such as Chinese punctuation marks, the design is the same and represents a new rendering of the New Tai Lue (Xishuangbanna Dai) script, which was first added to Unicode 4.1 and subsequently amended.1  These fonts include a complete set of New Tai Lue consonants, vowels, tones and digits, along with punctuation and other useful symbols. A basic set of Latin glyphs, including Arabic numerals, is also provided. Chinese punctuation used in New Tai Lue texts are included as well.

Packager
  • Once a package has entered the review stage, add a Review reference ④ such as 181994. You can reference this wiki page in your review request as additional information. Please do not forget to CC fedora-fonts-bugs-list@redhat.com on your bugzilla ticket.
  • Once a package has been approved, add the corresponding:


Style Faces Scripts
Sans Serif Other R B I BI Other Latin Greek Cyrillic Other
Variable Monospace Variable Monospace
Same faces in light talu

Caveats

  1. Upstream claims those are two different fonts and indeed they declare two different font families. However those are really 8 faces of a single font, and the plural is disputable. Therefore the font set should arguably be packaged in a single package.
  2. You should ask the fontconfig maintainer for a fontconfig trick that would help collapsing the 8 faces under a single family. do Do not forget to include other appropriate fontconfig rules in the package too.

Take care of those items and remove them from the page once they've been dealt with.
