Doulos SIL (font)

Doulos SIL is a font package of SIL, the Unicode-encoded version of SIL Doulos.


"Doulos SIL is a TrueType font with 'smart font?' capabilities added using the Graphite?, OpenType®?, and AAT font technologies. This means that complex typographic issues such as the placement of diacritics or the formation of ligatures? are handled by the font, provided you are running an application that provides an adequate level of support for one of these smart font technologies."

"The goal for this product was to provide a single Unicode-based font family that would contain a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost any Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system.... This font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies to support complex typographic issues, such as the need to position arbitrary combinations of base glyphs? and diacritics optimally.

"Doulos is very similar to Times/Times New Roman, but only has a single face - regular. It is intended for use alongside other Times-like fonts where a range of styles (italic, bold) are not needed."
