  • GFS Solomos is a open font by George D. Matthiopoulos of the Greek Font Society.

    From the middle of the 19th century an italic font with many calligraphic overtones was introduced into Greek printing. Its source is unknown, but it almost certainly was the product of a German or Italian foundry. In the first type specimen printed in Greece by the typecutter K. Miliadis (1850), the font was listed anonymously along others of 11pts and in the Gr. Doumas' undated specimen appeared as "11pt Greek inclined". For most of the second half of the century the type was used extensively as an italic for emphasis in words, sentences or excerpts. In 1889, the folio size Type Specimen of Anestis Konstantinidis' publishing, printing and type founding establishment also included the type as Greek inclined (9 and 12 pt). Nevertheless, the excessively calligraphic style of the characters, combined with the steep and uncomfortable obliqueness of the capitals, was out of favour in the 20th century and the type did not survive the conformity of the mechanical type cutting and casting. The font has been digitally revived, as part of our typographic tradition, by George D. Matthiopoulos and is part of GFS' type library under the name GFS Solomos, in commemoration of the great Greek poet of the 19th century, Dionisios Solomos.

  • Google has been developing a font family called Noto, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel. Noto is Google’s answer to tofu. The name Noto is to convey the idea that Google’s goal is to see “no more tofu” (tofu being the nickname for the small square boxes displayed when characters are missing from a font). Noto has multiple styles and weights, and is freely available to all.

  • This is a set of multilingual keyboards for use with Latin alphabets as well as quite a few other scripts. An online keyboard is very helpful when you don't have to type a lot of text. It makes it possible to type within a webpage, copy and then paste your text into a working document. This kind of keyboard is probably not suitable for everyday usage. A regular, installed keyboard might be more suitable for a language that is being constantly typed.
