Hi!

Have you ever concidered merging your fonts with DejaVu ones?

Thanks,

Hi
Nice try, but polish fonts are not fully correct. Please consult following page :

If you mean e ogonek, it's already better in the fonts than in the screenshot, which I haven't had the time to update yet.

Looks very good. There is a great need for greek fonts. So If you add Greek to it, I know that they will instantly included in most Greek apps

Very good, congratultions!

However, can I request one more letter?
The letter is "Schwa", looks like upside down "e". This is the only one missing for us, Azerbaijani linux users.

I could give some more information about that letter if you're willing to add suppport to it.

Thanks

Yes, I'm planning to do that but not very soon because real-life obligations take most of my time these days.

Adding Scwha requires a little more typographic talent than just putting an accent over a letter. While lower case schwa is just an upside-down e, upper case schwa has to be drawn from scratch. You cannot simply enlarge it from lower case schwa - that would make it look extra-bold.

Meanwhile, you can use Gentium:

These fonts look quite good. Could you explain in what ways they differ from the Vera fonts?

Thanks.

"... with additional letters for Baltic, Central European, South European and other languages, including Maori, Welsh and Esperanto."

the vera font set has been extended with some extra characters used by the regions cited above.

i recon for countries using basic ascii characters it does make no difference.

Oh, I see -- that is the difference.

As I say, I like the Vera fonts. My only real complaint with them is that I find the glyphs too wide, for my taste. I'd like to find a narrowed version of them.
