font with a glyph for each visible Unicode 5.1 Plane 0 characterThis 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.
