State agencies to adopt royal font

The Thai font style of ''Chulabhorn Likhit'' bestowed by Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Krom Phra Srisavangavadhana, will be adopted as one of the sets of standard fonts for use by state agencies.

Deputy government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said yesterday the Chulabhorn Likhit font will become one of 14 sets of standard style of characters.

The adoption was approved by the cabinet to mark the princess's 64th birthday on July 4 and to pay tribute to Her Royal Highness receiving a PhD degree in visual arts from the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts at Silpakorn University.

Ms Traisuree added the newly-adopted characters are versatile and they will help preserve the integrity of Thai writing.
