SIL Dai Banna New Tai Lue fonts
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.

- 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.
- 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.
Another solid international font from SIL.
