smart Unicode font for Latin and Cyrillic scripts (tight spacing version)
The goal for the Doulos SIL font 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 Doulos SIL font contains near-complete coverage of all the characters defined in Unicode 7.0 for Latin and Cyrillic. In total, over 3,600 glyphs are included, providing support for over 2,300 characters as well as a large number of ligated character sequences (e.g., contour tone letters used in phonetic transcription of tonal languages). . In addition, alternately-designed glyphs are also provided for a number of characters for use in particular contexts. The glyphs are accessible in applications that support advanced font technologies, specifically the Graphite or OpenType technologies. These technologies are also utilized to provide automatic positioning of diacritics relative to base characters in arbitrary base+diacritic combinations (including combinations involving multiple diacritics). .

In addition, alternately-designed glyphs are also provided for a number of characters for use in particular contexts. These capabilities are only available if you are running an application that provides an adequate level of support for one of these smart font technologies. .
