  • 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.

  • Mark Williamson's MPH 2B Damase is a free font encoding many non-Latin scripts, including the Unicode 4.1 scripts in the Supplementary Multilingual Plane: Armenian, Cherokee, Coptic, Cypriot, Cyrillic, Deseret, Khutsuri, Glagolitic, Gothic, Greek, Hanunóo, Hebrew, Linear B, Old Italic, Old Persian Cuneiform, Osmanya, Phoenician, Shavian, Tai Le (no combining tone marks), Thaana, Tifinagh, Ugaritic, and Vietnamese. A few of these scripts do not display perfectly; Tai Le does not have combining tone marks, and Hanunóo does not support the ligatures needed for writing Buhid.

Adobe Creative Suite users must have the Middle Eastern version, or a plug-in such as IndicPlus.
