Goal of this procedure
This procedure explains how to identify if your font was created using the SIL Encore font package.
If you haven't already, review the webpage How to Identify Legacy and Other Fonts, including installing the Microsoft Font Properties Extension.
This font was created with SIL Encore Font Compiler
Since it says SIL Encore Font Compiler this is an Encore font. You can easily create a draft TECkit mapping of this font using the Encore2Unicode software. The Encore2Unicode program does not read fonts not created by Encore.
