Eurasian fonts for Windows
The Eurasian fonts for Windows support the Cyrillic alphabets of the Bashkir, Buryat, Chuvash, Kalmyk, Kirghiz, Mongolian, Tatar, Turkmen and Uighur languages.
The encoding of the fonts is based on the "standard" Tatar Cyrillic encoding that has been supplemented with additional letters of other Turkic and Mongolian languages. The Russian alphabet occupies the place of the Latin-1 supplement in the Western (Windows CP 1252) encoding and its own Unicode positions in the Cyrillic (CP 1251) encoding. Additional Uralic letters can be found in three places - instead of additional characters in the Western encoding, instead of additional characters in the Cyrillic encoding and in their own Unicode positions. See the test page for details.
Additional letters can be written by using special keyboards for Windows 95/98/ME (based on the Windows 1251 code page) and Windows NT4/2000/XP. For the latter we offer keyboard layouts based on the Unicode standard as well as non-standard layouts based on the Windows 1251 code page.
The original fonts were created by URW++, the Cyrillic part by Valek Filippov, and were modified by Esa Anttikoski. These fonts can be distributed and modified freely in accordance with the GNU General Public License.
We take no responsability for any possible damage that might occure while installing and using the fonts. Send your comments and suggestions to Esa.Anttikoski@joensuu.fi
