Ezra SIL is the same typeface as SIL Ezra and is fashioned after the
square letter forms of the typography of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia
(BHS), a beautiful Old Testament volume familiar to biblical Hebrew scholars.
The Ezra SIL font is an OpenType 'smart' font.
Two fonts from this typeface family are included in this release:
- Ezra SIL version 2.51 (Containing the basic set of Unicode
characters needed for Biblical Hebrew texts following the
typeface and traditions of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.)
- Ezra SIL SR version 2.51 (Containing the same set of Unicode
characters as above but with a different style of cantillation.)
See the changelog (FONTLOG) for information on this and previous releases.
