xfonts-unifont

PCF (bitmap) version of GNU Unifont

Description

This contains two fonts: "Unifont" (unifont.pcf.gz) and "Unifont Sample" (unifont_sample.pcf.gz).

This is a bitmap version of Unifont and Unifont Sample in a standard X11 format. The fonts provide a glyph for each visible code point (character) in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts. These fonts look best at 12pt.

Unifont Sample contains combining circles for combining characters, and so is suited for illustrating individual Unicode glyphs, whereas Unifont is intended for general-purpose writing.

Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which is written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy behind Unifont, though, is that anything meaningful is better than an empty box for a unknown glyph.

Consider using the TrueType version instead (ttf-unifont), because that version is scalable to any point size and has proper combining character support.
