Beautiful Khmer Web Fonts

Khmer Unicode is great – until you get on a site that hasn’t used any Khmer Unicode Web Fonts and the system default Khmer font is used. Unfortunately, most system default Khmer fonts are horrible looking (especially the Khmer font supplied with Windows). So, what can you do about it as a webmaster? Plenty!

Khmer SBBIC Serif Font

One of the issues with the current Khmer Unicode fonts is the English characters included do not look good (and this is understandable as they were not meant to be used as English fonts). But for some, we use both English and Khmer, in certain documents and so having a font that displays Khmer and English properly is necessary.

This keyboard includes some additions that we felt were needed so we didn’t have to switch between an English keyboard to get certain symbols.

The keyboard is based on the Khmer OS and NiDA keyboard and edited…
