TrueType version of GNU Unifont

This contains two fonts: "Unifont" and "Unifont Sample".

unifont.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType outline font, Unifont. Each pixel in the original bitmap font is represented as an outlined square. The font provides a glyph for each visible code point (character) in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts. This font looks best at 12pt.

unifont_sample.ttf is an SBIT font that contains combining circles and is therefore suitable for illustrating individual Unicode glyphs. unifont.ttf does not contain combining circles and so is suitable for general-purpose writing.

Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which is written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than an empty box for a unknown glyph.
