3 ========================
5 Thank you for your interest in the Gentium Plus fonts.
6 We hope you find them useful!
8 Gentium Plus supports a wide range of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic
9 characters. Documentation for the fonts is available on Gentium website
10 (http://scripts.sil.org/Gentium), including details on what ranges are
11 supported.
13 Gentium Plus is released under the SIL Open Font License.
15 See the OFL and OFL-FAQ for details of the SIL Open Font License.
16 See the FONTLOG for information on this and previous releases.
17 See the GENTIUM-FAQ for answers to common questions about the Gentium fonts
18 See the website (http://scripts.sil.org/Gentium) for further documentation.
19 See the SIL Unicode Roman FAQ (http://scripts.sil.org/ComplexRomanFontFAQ)
20 for frequently asked questions and their answers regarding SIL's Roman fonts.
24 ====
26 As this font is distributed at no cost, we are unable to provide a
27 commercial level of personal technical support. The font has, however,
28 been through some testing on various platforms to be sure it works in most
29 situations. In particular, it has been tested and shown to work on Windows
30 XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Graphite capabilities have been tested
31 on Graphite-supported platforms.
33 If you do find a problem, please do report it to fonts@sil.org.
34 We can't guarantee any direct response, but will try to fix reported bugs in
35 future versions. Make sure you read through the
36 SIL Unicode Roman FAQ (http://scripts.sil.org/ComplexRomanFontFAQ).
38 Many problems can be solved, or at least explained, through an understanding
39 of the encoding and use of the fonts. Here are some basic hints:
41 Encoding:
42 The fonts are encoded according to Unicode, so your application must support
43 Unicode text in order to access letters other than the standard alphabet.
44 Most Windows applications provide basic Unicode support. You will, however,
45 need some way of entering Unicode text into your document.
47 Keyboarding:
48 This font does not include any keyboarding helps or utilities. It uses the
49 built-in keyboards of the operating system. You will need to install the
50 appropriate keyboard and input method for the characters of the language you
51 wish to use. If you want to enter characters that are not supported by any
52 system keyboard, the Keyman program (www.tavultesoft.com) can be helpful
53 on Windows systems. Also available for Windows is MSKLC
54 (http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/tools/msklc.mspx).
55 For Linux systems such as Ubuntu, KMFL (http://kmfl.sourceforge.net/)
56 is available. Ukelele (http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele) is available for
57 Mac OS X versions 10.2 and later.
59 For other platforms, KMFL (http://kmfl.sourceforge.net/),
60 XKB (http://www.x.org/wiki/XKB) or Ukelele (http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele)
61 can be helpful.
63 If you want to enter characters that are not supported by any system
64 keyboard, and to access the full Unicode range, we suggest you use
65 gucharmap, kcharselect on Ubuntu or similar software.
67 Another method of entering some symbols is provided by a few applications such
68 as Adobe InDesign or OpenOffice.org. They can display a glyph palette or input
69 dialog that shows all the glyphs (symbols) in a font and allow you to enter
70 them by clicking on the glyph you want.
72 Rendering:
73 This font is designed to work with Graphite or Opentype advanced font
74 technologies. To take advantage of the advanced typographic
75 capabilities of this font, you must be using applications that provide an
76 adequate level of support for Graphite or OpenType. See "Applications
77 that provide an adequate level of support for SIL Unicode Roman fonts"
78 (http://scripts.sil.org/Complex_AdLvSup).
