Font[edit]

We would like suggestions on open source font to use that will support characters that are part of the MES-1, MES-2 and MES-3 subsets of Unicode.

  • DejaVu has both serif and sans serif, and supports lots of unicode characters (not sure specifically about the subsets you refer to), and is free as in freedom. Mike.lifeguard 07:00, 11 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • I've created a table a while ago for the Foundation: here around. I started using Linux Libertine because it looks good and really pretty smart, and AFAIK it covers MES1/2 (extended latin and mostly used nonlatin), though I cannot tell about MES-3 since I cannot find it defined. FreeSans and FreeSerif is okay, which is probably just the same as the mentioned DejaVu fonts. Droid fonts also very pretty, but I have no information on their Unicode coverage. All of these are free. --Grin 14:03, 19 December 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Cary says that Code 2010 and w:Code 2011 are open source fonts that support non-Latin alphabets. 216.38.133.254 01:03, 16 January 2010 (UTC)Marlita 01:05, 16 January 2010 (UTC)[reply]
    • They are not free but shareware (if I'm right), and they do not seem to exist even on the author's own page. --62.165.247.77 11:20, 14 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Screencast Software[edit]

Is there an open source tool such as Camtasia that we can use to create screens?
