NotePad displays them correctly.

Do you have a minimal code to illustrate what you mean?

No code. Download EditPad Lite then view these styles in the Font... panel.

Would you mind checking two groups of other fonts whether the same behavior happens to them?

  • Group 1: Purisa, Sawasdee, Umpush, Waree, Garuda, Norasi, and Loma
  • Group 2: Kinnari

I just want to confirm a hypothesis on how EditPad decides whether a font is bold. Thank you.

Umpush Light displays as Medium and Kinnari Medium displays as Bold.

And no problem with other Group 1 fonts, right? If so, that means EditPlus decides weight based on TTFWeight proprerty. But I'm a bit surprised to hear that Umpush Light is classified as Medium, because it already uses 300 "Light", according to MS spec:
