Second Khmer Webfont for iOS

Nokora is the second webfont I have added AAT tables to recently. It has gone live today (October 25 2012). I designed the font especially for the small screens of Android phones, and now it also works with iPhone and iPad.

The first font I have added AAT tables to is Hanuman. It also combines the AAT technology of Apple and the OpenType technology for displaying text on most small devices, including Android phones and iPhones.

Statistics today show that total number of times Hanuman was served by the Google Font API each week is 2,182,449.

You can find both Nokora and Hanuman fonts here: google.com/webfonts

Specimen of Nokora: google.com/webfonts/specimen/Nokora

The page for testing here: khnews.info/test.html
