The problem is that typography isn't free, and nobody's volunteering to make such fonts available free, except Michael Everson, and he only when he's not busy, which is rarely. See . The fonts used to print the Unicode books are donated by various typographical companies and usable solely for that purpose. <<<<<< *I* just volunteered to produce fonts for free (as have others in this list), with the one caveat (in my case) that *as yet* my ability isn't very good, so the results may be a bit shabby, and take a rather long time to produce. The one problem is getting copyright-free source material, and if I could draw freehand or find a source in the public domain, I'd churn out one free font a month, at least. Rant over. Bunker door secured. Asbestos suit at the ready. :-) Just my .02, for which I am unlikely to offer appologies. --- Pb "Kill them all.
