I confirm that the word looks right in the development version of FreeMono.

Hello Anonymous,

This appears to be two separate issues.

Regarding the advance width, the development version of the font does not show this problem.

Regarding U_A92D, I do think I now understand how the mark should connect, and I have made changes.

Please check the development version. If you would identify yourself, I could provide you with a binary build of the font.

In FreeMono, every Kayah Li combining character (U+A926 to U+A92D) includes a space after it. An example is “ꤙꤢꤨ꤭ꤞꤥ꤭”, where the U+A92D is not attached to the U+A922, and where there are spaces in the middle of and after the word.
