The 'PG Mansa' family is a facsimile of a person's handwriting and is provided in two weights: Medium and Bold.
In order to aid comparison, the fonts in the image on the right have been sized and spaced so that the height of the ਸ is he same and also, the leading has been adjusted so that
the lines are equally spaced. In this way, you can see how large the ascenders and descenders are in relation to the body of the line content.
The Mansa font family is quite like the Dukandar family insofar as it has largely separated letters and the ੳ is fairly round with the font as a whole having a certain fluidity about it.
The biharis, on the other hand, are more like those of Adhiapak in that the tops of them are quite angular.
Overall, whereas Adhiapak is fairly upright and Dukandar slopes slightly to the right, Mansa slopes more to the left.
As always, the font characters are in the Unicode space for Gurmukhi and in the phonetic ASCII range.
Note that the Adhak and the Tippee are fairly wide so if you find that they have collided with another above-the-line feature such as a sihari, you can
use the short space mapped to the underscore key to add extra space with a line as required.
