Returning to the original question, Lao texts on are following to any
existing convention for Lao script, or for a
transliteration by Lao users? Sorry, the site looks
like a site for registered users, I've not checked
the contents by myself.

One of the possibility I don't want to see is that
the text was a per-character replacement of Thai
text by Lao characters, and Lao users have different
transliteration convention.
