This contains four fonts: "Unifont", "Unifont Upper", "Unifont CSUR",
and "Unifont Sample".
unifont.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
outline font, Unifont.  Each pixel in the original bitmap font
is represented as an outlined square.  The font provides a glyph
for each visible code point (character) in the Unicode Basic
Multilingual Plane (BMP, or Plane 0).  The BMP contains most of
the world's modern writing scripts.  This font looks best at 12pt.
unifont_upper.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
outline font that covers Unicode ranges above Plane 0.  Most of its
glyphs are in Plane 1, the Unicode Supplemental Multilingual Plane (SMP).
unifont_csur.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
outline font that contains some scripts in the ConScript Unicode
Registry (CSUR).  These scripts are not part of the Unicode Standard,
but are a popular use for the Private Use Area (PUA).  This font
contains glyphs in Plane 0 and in the higher PUA planes.
unifont_sample.ttf is an SBIT font that contains combining circles
and is therefore suitable for illustrating individual Unicode glyphs.
The other font files do not contain combining circles and so are suitable
for general-purpose writing.
Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change
shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which
can be written vertically) will not render perfectly.  The philosophy
behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than
an empty box for an unknown glyph.
