XenoType Technologies is now at:

They seem to have kits for Mongolian, Burmese, Khmer, Laotian, Tibetan,
Assyrian/E. Syriac, and Georgian and they have or are working on fonts for
Javanese, *Liangshan Yi*, Thai Ahom, Thai Kheun, Kiranti/Limbu, Lepha, Thai
Yai, Armenian, Cherokee, Dhivehi (Maldivian), Ethiopic/Amharic/Tigrigna,
Maltese, Sinhala
and Somali.

I don't know whether or not these fonts are designed to display Unicode text
