The full list is:

  • Mukta
  • MuktaMahee
  • MuktaMalar

I can export an ebook with the options fonts=Mukta, fonts=Mukta Mahee, fonts=Mukta Malar and fonts=Mukta Vaani.

@Samwilson How many points should we mark this as?

@dom_walden Thanks!

@ifried Probably 2.

I've looked at the examples provided by Dom of books downloaded from the test version of WSExport with Mukta fonts, and they look good. Additionally, I tested downloading Tamil & Bengali books with the Mukta font on the test & production versions of WS-Export. In all cases, the exports looked good. As Sam noted that this is done on both test and production, so I'm marking this as Done.
