font with a glyph for each visible Unicode 5.1 Plane 0 character
This package is a convenient way to install both the PCF bitmap
version and the scalable TrueType outline version of GNU Unifont.
It also installs a copy of unifont.hex and related files in
/usr/share/unifont.
.
GNU Unifont was designed to render something besides an empty box
for each visible Unicode character in the Basic Multilingual Plane
(Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts.
This font looks best at 12pt.
.
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.
