fonts-sil-gentiumplus - 6.200-1 main

Gentium ("belonging to the nations" in Latin) is a Unicode typeface family
designed to enable the many diverse ethnic groups around the world who use
the Latin script to produce readable, high-quality publications. The
design is intended to be highly readable, reasonably compact, and visually
attractive. Gentium has won a "Certificate of Excellence in Typeface
Design" in two major international typeface design competitions:
bukva:raz! (2001), TDC2003 (2003). The Gentium Plus font family is based on
this original design.
The goal for this product is to provide a single Unicode-based font family
that contains a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost any
Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system, whether used for phonetic or
orthographic needs, and provide a matching Greek face. In addition, there
is provision for other characters and symbols useful to linguists. This
font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies to support complex
typographic issues, such as the need to position arbitrary combinations
of base glyphs and diacritics optimally.
Eight fonts from this typeface family are included in this release,
grouped into two families, including a slightly heavier Book family:
* Gentium Plus Regular
* Gentium Plus Bold
* Gentium Plus Italic
* Gentium Plus Bold Italic
* Gentium Book Plus Regular
* Gentium Book Plus Bold
* Gentium Book Plus Italic
* Gentium Book Plus Bold Italic
Webfont versions and HTML/CSS examples are also available.
The full font sources are publicly available at
An open workflow is used for building, testing and releasing.
