Are you saying the difference in names is "SIL Ezra" vs. "Ezra SIL" ?
That's too confusing!
When I gave the URL, I checked that it was referring
to an "OpenType" font --and since it was OpenType, I assumed that it was the
newer version with a Unicode CMAP. If SIL still has links to legacy non-Unicode
versions of fonts which now also have Unicode versions, then they should make
this really clear to people. My apologies if I provided the wrong URL.
