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 5.1 for Latin and Cyrillic. In total, over 2,200 glyphs
are included, providing support for over 1,500 graphic or control
characters as well as a large number of ligated character sequences (e.g.,
contour tone letters used in phonetic transcription of tonal languages).
Doulos SIL is a TrueType font with "smart font" capabilities added
using the Graphite, OpenType(r), and AAT font technologies. This means that
complex typographic issues such as the placement of multiple diacritics or the
formation of ligatures are handled by the font, provided you are running an
application that provides an adequate level of support for one of these
smart font technologies.
Doulos SIL is a trademark of SIL International.
See the FONTLOG for information on this and previous releases.
Webfonts formats and HTML/CSS examples are available.
