  Unicode Buginese Lontara Font Support from XenoType Technologies
The Buginese script requires a few special features, including graphic transposition and ligatures, to display text properly but these things are all handled automatically by the features in our font.
We also provide support for some modern punctuation marks not specifically included in Unicode as well as two different variants used to display final consonants (these are modern innovations as traditional use of the script does not provide for this).
The term ‘Buginese’ is commonly used but we have opted for the more natural name ‘Lontara.’ It is expected that the Unicode Consortium will adopt the same designation.

The primary motive of the Buginese in reclaiming the swamps of eastern Sumatra was probably not for agricultural purposes but for log harvesting in the lowland rain forests and the establishment of a flourishing timber trade between Sumatra and Java, with the help of their unique sailing boats.
The Buginese are thus one of the few examples of pioneer settlers who do not simply burn the slashed trees of a cleared plot but who make a profitable business out of it.
In contrast to the Buginese farming system which combines at least two major enterprises (wet-rice growing and coconut cultivation, accomplished through additional logging in the early phase), the state-directed transmigration projects in the tidal swamps are conceived more or less for the mono-cropping of rice and are therefore highly susceptible to the risk of failure.

When the Dutch finally conquered Makassar in 1669, Buginese traders were already moving in their prahus throughout the Indonesian archipelago in search of trade; they sailed with the direction of the prevailing monsoon and returned to Sulawesi for only short periods each year to attend to refitting and repairing their vessels.

The first Buginese coming to settle in the Sumatran swamplands were pioneers not only in the sense of having to fell forest, dig canals, and contend with tigers but also in the sense of moving into a context in which neither their people nor their culture predominated.
