it's the right time to spend time on fixing fonts file: I think I'll give

In Vietnamese, it's just readable at that size, but it's not very good. I have to guess some of the diacritics from the context, because they blend into each other, there's just a blob instead of two distinct diacritics. The a-grave is definitely weird, almost separates the a from the previous character: the grave should be centred above the vowel.

I'm downloading the package, and will send you a detailed critique. I hope that will be useful. :)
