About Unicode Fonts

This topic is part of About Configuring Language Support for Browser Platforms.

This guide sometimes mentions Unicode fonts. This term refers to a font that contains glyphs for most, if not all possible characters in Unicode. Such fonts are not shipped as standard parts of any operating system. Customers must license them or otherwise obtain them for installation on their client machines.

A commonly used font of this type is Arial Unicode MS, which comes with every installation of Microsoft Office. However, it must be installed through an additional procedure (see Microsoft Office documentation), and it only includes glyphs for about 40,000 characters (it is compatible with Unicode 2.0).
