DaunPenh is a typeface designed for typesetting the Khmer language of Cambodia in the Khmer script. It is an upright, compact, simple-looking style with very little contrast between thick and thin strokes, which gives is a straightforward, functional, “sans serif” appearance. It is intended for body text, and its open forms should make it readable at small sizes.
Khmer type designer Om Mony designed DaunPenh for Microsoft in 2006. It is named after a major district in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. DaunPenh has only one weight, and no italic style. The font includes capitals and lowercase for the Latin script.
