There is a mailing list (very low traffic) for questions about VnTeX and typesetting Vietnamese. To subscribe to the list, visit https://sourceforge.net/projects/vntex/lists/vntex-users.
VnTeX also provides Vietnamese support for URW Classico and URW Garamond. These fonts were released under the AFPL (Aladdin Free Public License) and thus cannot be freely distributed.
TeX Live and MacTeX users can install them with getnonfreefonts, see https://www.tug.org/fonts/getnonfreefonts/.
If your TeX distribution doesn't support getnonfreefonts you can download https://ctan.org/tex-archive/install/fonts/vntex-nonfree.tds.zip. Please note that it's not sufficient to extract the zip file.
Samples of fonts provided by vntex and vntex-nonfree are available at http://vntex.sourceforge.net/fonts/samples/.
Download the contents of this package in one zip archive (7.3M).

The vntex bundle provides fonts, Plain TeX, texinfo and LaTeX macros for typesetting documents in Vietnamese.
