Hi Hsing-yen,

Again, sorry for the delay in answering. I only saw this today.

I suspect this will be a lot harder that it first appears. But anyway, I'm avoiding starting new ranges at this time.

Thanks for the recommendation!

These scripts may requires CJK punctuation, one example can be seen from there:

Hi Steve,

Do you want to giving support to Mongolian, Manchu and Xibo languages? I have found SourceForge has a font developed for Manchu, also available under GPL license, but the developers have no maintance anymore. I think you can intergrate into FreeSerif and giving contextural fearures.

You can get from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/manchufont/files/ManchuFont2005%20%28Obsolete%29/

Some contextural variants is already standard by Unicode:
