The Mu computer's FoC archive browser now renders most Unicode. See the before/after images below.
I'm loading 140KB of Unicode glyphs from its system font. Unicode blocks now supported: latin, greek, cyrillic, armenian, hebrew, arabic, syriac, thaana, n'ko, indian (ISCII), sinhala, thai, lao, tibetan, myanmar, georgian (< U+1100)
While this is useful in a mostly-English corpus, there are caveats for more intensive use cases:
• No support for combining characters
yet. This makes support for the other languages I know (Hindi and Tamil, which use _matras
_) well-nigh useless.
• GNU Unifont
's glyphs for the non-Latin languages I know turn out to be quite spectacularly ugly.
