Re: tc-list Coptic fonts
- There are several Coptic fonts available for free download from Web or FTP
sites, including the SPAchmim font. The author of the page at
http://www.remnkemi.com/fonts mischaracterizes SPAchmim by calling it a
Sahidic font. In addition to the regular Sahidic characters, it includes
two Bohairic forms of chai and one Achmimic form. He states, "The problem
with this font is that it is missing a few letters. As you can see on the
left, the 'V' is missing." There are no missing letters that I'm aware
of, but I didn't create separate large versions of the letters to use as
capitals, since the forms are really not any different (so also with the
Greek uncial font SPDoric). If you want to use larger forms of the
letters, the way to do it is to use <FONT SIZE=+2> in your HTML document.
It might be useful in a future version of the font to include separate
larger versions of each letter.
