Unicode font for the Lepcha script


Mingzat is based on Jason Glavy's JG Lepcha font which was a custom-encoded font. His design is used with his generous permission. He also agreed to allow the font to be released under the SIL Open Font License (OFL).

The goal for this product was to provide a single Unicode-based font that would contain all Lepcha characters. In addition, there is provision for other Latin characters and symbols. This font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies (Graphite and OpenType) to support the need for conjuncts and to position arbitrary combinations of Lepcha glyphs and combining marks optimally.

One font from this typeface family is included in this release:

    * Mingzat Regular

 Webfont versions and HTML/CSS examples are also available.

The full font sources are publicly available at An open workflow is used for building, testing and releasing.
