    Blame James almost rhymes.

    It's my understanding that the display of Saysettha, which does
    include OpenType tables, will be as expected wherever OpenType
    Lao is supported. But, the important factor is that the font was
    designed also to display legibly in the event that OpenType Lao
    is *not* supported. So, text displayed with this font will look
    a bit different, depending on the platform/application.

    So, Saysettha *is* an instance of that to which you referred, as
    long as you test it without OT support.

    Best regards,
