33 Are there any Sinhala fonts?


Sunil Koswatta <skoswatt@mcs.kent.edu> has created a bitmapped Sinhala
font for the Macintosh computers.
http://nimitz.mcs.kent.edu/~skoswatt/sin.html

Vasantha Saparamadu <vasa@ee.uts.edu.au> has sucessfully converted the
above to a LaTex font.

No Sinhala Metafonts that I know of (yet). If you are interested in
developing a sinhala Metafont, you may want to contact Wijesuriya
Dayawansa <wpd@eng.umd.edu> at University of Maryland.
