smart Unicode font family for Roman or Cyrillic-based writing systems
The goal for Charis SIL is to provide a single Unicode-based font family
that would contain a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost
any Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system, whether used for phonetic or
orthographic needs. In addition, there is provision for other characters
and symbols useful to linguists.
The Charis SIL font contains near-complete coverage of all the characters
defined in Unicode 5.1 for Latin and Cyrillic. In total, over 2,200 glyphs
are included, providing support for over 1,500 graphic or control
characters as well as a large number of ligated character sequences (e.g.,
contour tone letters used in phonetic transcription of tonal languages).
Four fonts from this typeface family are included in this release:
* Charis SIL Regular
* Charis SIL Bold
* Charis SIL Italic
* Charis SIL Bold Italic
Charis 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.
Charis SIL is a trademark of SIL International.
See the FONTLOG for information on this and previous releases.
