Padauk is a TrueType font with smart font capabilities added using OpenType and Graphite font technologies. This means that complex typographic issues such as the placement of combining marks or the formation of conjuncts and ligatures are handled by the font, provided you are running an application that provides an adequate level of support for one of these smart font technologies.
Four fonts are included in the Padauk release:
- Padauk Regular
- Padauk Bold
- Padauk Book Regular
- Padauk Book Bold
