Summary

Developing fonts is necessary to support every page.


Proposal

Developing Wikipedia Unicode fonts to render properly in complex script for everyone.


Motivation

Assuming you are not a native users of Indic script, you might see broken letters. There is very few free unicode fonts now. (Almost everything is proprietary.) If we have free unicode fonts, It will be helpful for explaining Indic cultures, peoples. And it will be also helpful for maintenance for Indic-based wiki.


Key Questions

  • How can we support many scripts?
  • How can we reduce size of font files?

Potential Costs

  • Global participation is required.
