Description: smart font in traditional hand-written style of the Tai Viet
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
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.
