The Buginese script requires a few special features, including graphic transposition and ligatures, to display text properly but these things are all handled automatically by the features in our font.
We also provide support for some modern punctuation marks not specifically included in Unicode as well as two different variants used to display final consonants (these are modern innovations as traditional use of the script does not provide for this).
The term ‘Buginese’ is commonly used but we have opted for the more natural name ‘Lontara.’ It is expected that the Unicode Consortium will adopt the same designation.
