Khmer Unicode vs. WEFT (Embeded Fonts) for Web Developers

Khmer Unicode is recommended to use for building the Web Sites. It is the way of the future. The below line of Meta tag code is required in order to use Khmer Unicode. Example, www.google.com.kh; www.cambodia.org/kh/buzz
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">

Even Microsoft Window Vista or Window 7 has Khmer Unicode built-in, but it is not widely used yet. Window XP is still being used especially by Khmer folks in Cambodia. Therefore, WEFT is commended while using Khmer Unicode for building the website.

Microsoft developed Web Embedding Fonts Tool (WEFT) that allows web developers to create “Font Object” and link it to web page so that Khmer fonts can be readable by web page viewers. This WEFT tool is widely used by popular sites such as Everday.com.kh, KasSanTePheapDaily, Embassy of the United States, and many more. Indeed, the pages can be viewed in MS Internet Exploer mostly. Developers can use any type of Khmer fonts by embedding fonts in the object and link it or use it as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in the web pages. Download the Tool

Khmer Converters
Lots of websites are built with traditional fonts and used WEFT to embeded fonts in the websites. Those are, http://www.kohsantepheapdaily.com.kh/, http://www.everyday.com.kh/non_members/channels/news/localnews_kh.asp, http://www.dap-news.com/.  KhmerConverterSetup-1.5.1.zip is software that helps convert the traditional fonts to Khmer Unicode. Some editing is required after converting due to mis-match of Jerng, Sak, and Srak.

This page does not focus on the technical part of how Khmer Fonts were created nor the fundamental of Khmer Unicode, but how to utilize Khmer font and where to get Khmer fonts. If you have any questions about the fonts here please feel free to send them too: , thank you.
