Old Hungarian support fonts

This is a FontForge compatible support font package supporting the Old Hungarian unicode block added in Unicode version 8.0.

To build, simply open up the font file in FontForge and export it into your faviourite font type. Binaries are also available from oldhungarian.eu

Note that when generating .ttf files in FontForge, for compatiblity reason please enable only the following options:

  • TrueType Hints
  • PS Glyph names
  • OpenType

Do not use Apple as output as it doesn't support the ligatures properly.

Also note that the release contains two types of fonts, one has only the Old Hungarian glyphs, the other one also contains supporting punctuation glyphs from the Lato font package. Use the full font package in case your applications doesn't properly support fallbacks for punctuations, and use the slim version for other applications and the web.

Note: to generate the slim version of the font, simply delete all of the glyphs in the U-0000-U-2E2E range (except U-200D) before generating the TTF.

The release ZIP was generated using https://www.web-font-generator.com/

Supported glyphs

The font supports all basic characters from the Old Hungarian block (U+10C80 - U+10CFF), and also some of the more common ligatures. The list of supported glyphs can be found in GLYPHS.md

It also includes the two punctuation used in Old Hungarian: U+2E41 and U+2E42
