For anyone who wants a really pretty free font, or for anyone who doubts they exist, try Gentium. It was made as part of the Master of Arts for Typeface Design at the University of Reading, and is free. It prints as pretty as it reads on screen, and the entire point of it is to have full language support. (Via Ask MetaFilter.)

I realize this option isn’t free, but there’s always the Adobe Type Classics for Learning.

$99 for some really nice fonts, if you’re eligible for that student discount.

Incredibly cool entry! I just blogged about it and linked to you. I wanted to send a trackback ping but I don’t see the trackback URLs listed anywhere in your entries; am I just an idiot and not looking in the right place?
