Here. uni-14.def should replace the existing file in
tex/latex/unicode/data, other files are new. Fonts can be downloaded

Thanks. Would have saved me from a lot of brainstrain had I read this
before. The Saysettha and related fonts contain ligatures for the Lao
SalaAm + Niggahita + tone marks, so I did not implement the breakdown of
SalaAm -> Niggahita + SalaA. It means the Niggahita + tone mark will not
be placed correctly above the preceding consonant, but I thought that
people who made the font were willing to accept this.
AFAIK Lao do not need the decenderless ligatures.
