[Fontconfig] Thai fonts small compared to regular characters

I'm trying to learn thai, but I'm having some problems with the
display of thai fonts on my gnome desktop. For some reason, thai fonts
are rendered a lot smaller then regular characters. Since the regular
characters and the thai characters are taken from a different font, i
believe it should be possible to make my thai letters bigger, leaving
the latin's at their regular (sufficient) size. The link below shows
my problem: (Whole GTK has this, not only firefox):


I have been told that using the Loma font could help, but how do i setup
fontconfig to use Loma instead of Garuda (or whatever font it is
currently using). I don't want to use Loma as a systemwide font, since
it latin characters don't match Sans completely.

Thanks in advance,
