Our Basic Character Set

You can expect from all our fonts to at least contain the characters as defined in the Basic Character Set. This collection of glyphs has grown out of the iso 8859-15 and the Macintosh Central European encodings.
basic In our online catalog fonts that contain the Basic Character Set are marked with this icon. Read more about the icons used in the catalog section.
The complete Basic Character Set
Glyphs not contained in the original encodings (iso 8859-15 and Mac-CE) are placed onto a darker square.

Please note that although some of our display typefaces do not contain a lower case alphabet these fonts are marked with the Basic Glyph Set icon in the catalog as they still support all languages supported by the Basic Glyph Set in upper case only. If you find that characters are missing from a font we will be more than happy to add them for you.

Modern languages supported by our Basic Character Set
This character encoding is used throughout The Americas, Western Europe, Oceania, and much of Africa. It is also commonly used in most standard romanizations of East-Asian languages.
English (US and modern British)
Irish (new orthography)
Irish Gaelic
Latin (basic classical orthography)
Luxembourgish (basic classical orthography)
Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk)
Portuguese (European and Brazilian)
Scottish Gaelic
Serbian (Latin)
Greek and cyrillic
With the accession of Bulgaria to the European Union on January 1, 2007, after the Latin and Greek alphabets Cyrillic became the third official script of the EU. Some of our typefaces also contain greek and cyrillic character sets. However these fonts are especially marked in out catalog. Greek and cyrillic character sets are not part of our Basic Character Set.
