Debian-Installer font for Ethiopian and Erythrean scripts (Amharic et al.)
This package provides a smart open font for the scripts used in Ethiopia and
Erythrea (Amharic and others) use with the GTK+ frontend of debian-installer.

(new) fonts-sil-abyssinica_1.200-1_all.deb optional fonts
smart Unicode font for Ethiopian and Erythrean scripts (Amharic et al.)
The Ethiopic script is used for writing many of the languages of Ethiopia
and Eritrea. Ethiopic (U+1200..U+137F) was added to Unicode 3.0. Ethiopic
Supplement (U+1380..U+139F) and Ethiopic Extended (U+2D80..U+2DDF) were
added to Unicode 4.1. Abyssinica SIL supports all Ethiopic characters which
are in Unicode including the Unicode 4.1 extensions. Some languages of
Ethiopia are not yet able to be fully represented in Unicode and, where
necessary, we have included non-Unicode characters in the Private Use Area.
Please read the documentation to see what ranges are supported
and for more about the various features of the font.
Abyssinica SIL is a TrueType font with "smart font" capabilities added using
the Graphite, OpenType(r), and AAT font technologies. This means that
complex typographic issues such as the placement of multiple diacritics or
the formation of ligatures are handled by the font, provided you are
running an application that provides an adequate level of support for one
of these smart font technologies.
This release is a regular typeface, with no bold or italic version
available or planned.
More font sources are available in the source package and on the
project website. Webfont versions and examples are also available.
