HANDS-ON: UNICODE > UNICODE FONTS

UNICODE FONTS

To view the spectrum of characters included in Unicode, you’ll need a font that supports a broad range of scripts. In fact, there are no fonts available to date that include every Unicode character. Of course, the odds of someone needing to view every character are slim. It’s important to understand that you don’t need a font that supports many scripts just because a web page is encoded as UTF-8. All you need is a font that includes the characters in that particular web page. The standard Latin 1 fonts that you already use to view English-language web pages will continue to work if the encoding switches to UTF-8. However, Microsoft does offer a Unicode font in XP, Arial Unicode MS, which includes a wide range of characters. Not surprisingly, it’s also a large font: more than 23MB.
