Dai Banna SIL, a font family for rendering New Tai Lue (Xishuangbanna Dai)
Dai Banna includes a complete set of New Tai Lue (Xishuangbanna Dai) consonants, vowels, tones, and digits, along with punctuation and other useful symbols. A basic set of Latin glyphs, including Arabic numerals, is also provided. The New Tai Lue script is used by approximately 300 000 people who speak the Xishuangbanna Dai language in Yunnan, China. It is a simplification of the Tai Tham (Old Tai Lue) script as used for this language for hundreds of years. The Dai News Department of Xishuangbanna Daily provided valuable advice during the development of this font family. Xishuangbanna Daily, established in 1957, is the largest newspaper company in Yunnan, China that publishes in the New Tai Lue script.
