Description Amanpreet Singh Brar Alamwalia 2007-02-27 06:20:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Following fonts are availible for Punjabi which need to include in Fedora for 
Saab
AnmolUniBani

Why?
It is better than Lohit in various way like:
- Saab is equal even more than Raavi (M$'s Punjabi Fonts) GSUB/GPOS rules,
(surely Lohit has missing some of them)

- Dual vowel sign symbol in the Private Use Area. This represents a combined 
Hora and Onkar

AnmolUniBani uses several additional conjuncts not recognised by the Unicode 
standard. It also uses multiple conjoined consonants to represent alternative 
forms of conjuncts 

-More widely used by website
Licence
GNU General Public Licence

Website
Saab: http://guca.sourceforge.net/typography/fonts/saab/
AnmolUniBani : http://guca.sourceforge.net/typography/fonts/anmoluni/


If need more details I will provide Screenshot for both of them with compare 
to Lohit.

Thanks
