Khmer Mondulkiri v5.513 changes from v5.300

  • Support for Apple’s AAT rendering system (tested in OS X 10.6.8) as well as Microsoft OpenType tables.
  • Support for typographical features to be used under OS X with software that does support them (like Pages or TextEdit, but apparently not MS Word or LibreOffice.
  • Support for ‘Stylistic Sets’ that provide similar options in OpenType as the ‘typographical features’ in OS X. These Stylistic Sets work in Adobe software (tested with CS5 and 5.5 on PC), but not in MS Word. MS Word 2010 does support Stylistic Sets, but apparently only for Latin scripts.
  • Support for Khmer Unicode in Adobe CS5 and CS5.5. Two of the Stylistic Sets address the remaining problems. Please refer to the documentation on stylistic sets.
  • Many Latin script characters have been added. The bold fonts now also have bold Latin characters.
  • Some of the vowel-a ligatures have been changed (e.g. Cho-AA).
  • Many characters have been slightly modified. Most significantly the ‘hooks’ or ‘hair’ of some coengs have been removed(e.g. coeng-Kho, coeng-Ha, coeng-Qa).
  • The positioning of many characters was modified.
  • Many other smaller modifications of glyphs and rules.
  • To prevent register shifters from being rendered as subscript, zero-width-non-joiner has now to be inserted before the register shifter in accordance with The Unicode Standard. Also zero-width-joiner has to be in this position now to force the alternative rendering.
  • Increased the descender by a small amount so that second level elements are no longer cut off.
  • For users of the Tampuan language: coeng-vo after coeng-ro and shifting of samyuk before reahmuk are now enabled by default. The Tampuan option now only covers the width of space and the permission to use samyuk after reahmuk.
  • The support for the use of vowels and coengs with independent vowels in OS X is limited. If there is a real need for improvement please contact the font designer.
  • Changed position of quotes (U+2018..U+2019, U+201C..U+201D) and mirrored U+201C.
