Information about Averia font family:
Avería ("breakdown" or "mechanical damage" in Spanish - related to the root
of the English word "average") is a Unicode typeface family created from the
average of all fonts on the computer of the creator, Dan Sayers. The process
is described at http://iotic.com/averia/. All metrics are the result of an
averaging process. The included glyphs are those that existed in a majority
of the source fonts - which are the following:

Range           Description
U+0020-U+007E   Basic Latin
U+00A0-U+00FF   Latin-1 Supplement

And some glyphs from the following:

Range           Description
U+0100-U+017F   Latin Extended-A
U+0180-U+021F   Latin Extended-B
U+02B0-U+02FF   Spacing Modifier Letters
U+0370-U+03D5   Greek
U+2000-U+2122   General Punctuation
U+2200-U+25CS   Mathematical Operators

Avería exists in Regular, Bold, Italic, Bold Italic, Light and Light Italic
styles - as well as a "Gruesa" semi-italic variant made from an average of
all 508 source fonts.

Legal info:
The Averia GWF (or Libre) families of fonts are based on the average
of all 508 fonts
in the Google Web Fonts project, released under the SIL Open Font
License, as of 9 Nov 2011.
The upstream confirm:
"all of the Avería GWF (or Libre) fonts are strictly composed of the
average of OFL fonts".

Thank you for your attention,
