Constructium is a fork of SIL Gentium designed specifically to support constructed scripts as encoded in the Under-ConScript Unicode Registry.
Constructium is ideal for mixed Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, IPA, and conlang text in web sites and documents.
You can download Constructium here.
You can find Constructium on GitHub here.
In addition to Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, and IPA, Constructium supports the following conscripts:

Hwæt, we Gar-Dena in geardagum þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon, hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon. Oft Scyld Scefing sceaþena þreatum, monegum mægþum meodosetla ofteah; egsode Eorle.

των δε Ιουδαιων ουδεις ενιψατο τας χειρας, ουδε Ηρωδης ουδ εις των κριτων αυτου, και των βουληθεντων νιψασθαι. ανεστη Πειλατος, και τοτε κελευει Ηρωδης ο βασιλευς παραλημφθηναι τον κυριον, ειπων αυτοις οτι Οσα εκελευσα υμιν ποιησαι αυτω, ποινσατε. Ηκει δε εκει Ιωσηφ ο φιλος Πειλατου και του κυριου, και ειδως οτι σταυρισκειν αυτον μελλουσιν, ηλθεν προς τον Πειλατον και ητησε το σωμα του κυριου προς ταφην. και ο Πειλατος πεμψας προς Ηρωδην ητησεν αυτου το σωμα, και ο Ηρωδης εφη αδελφε Πειλατε, ει και μη τις αυτον ητηκει ημεις αυτον εθαπτομεν, επει και σαββατον επιφωσκαι γεγραπται γαρ εν τω νομω ηλιον μη δυναι επι πεφονευμενω προ μιας των αζυμων - της εοπτης αυτων.
Македонскиот јазик во балканската јазична средина и наспрема соседните словенски јаеици. 1. Македонскиот јазик се говори во СР Македонија, и надвор од нејзините граници, во оние делови на Македонија што по балканските војни влегоа во составот на Грција и Бугарија.
Constructium attempts to perform proper typesetting of Tengwar using glyph substitution and mark alignment tables, but it is somewhat limited. It is sufficient for the inscription on the One Ring, however, modulo OpenType support.

F856-F85F encode the CollegeHumor punctuation marks, as demonstrated:
- The “I’m Not Angry” Mark: When you need to be brief, but you’re not angry. We need to talk
- The Sinceriod: When you want to break out of your cynical shell and be truly honest with someone. Oh, wow Thank you This sweater is just what I wanted
- Sarcastises: The opposite of the sinceriod. Use when you want to be sarcastic, but in a way that’s totally different and better from whatever system you’re using now. Oh wow. Thank you. This sweater is just what I wanted.
- Hemi-Demi-Semicolon: If you don’t know when it’s appropriate to use a semicolon, and you’re too lazy to learn, you can use this in place of commas, semicolons, and periods. Pretty much wherever you feel like it. Now I can act superior and avoid learning anything I’m a stain on humanity.
- Andorpersand: One simple symbol for “and/or.” Some people hate the very existence of the phrase “and/or,” but these people are uptight stupid.
- Mockwotation Marks: For quoting something that someone didn’t say, but totally would say with the way they’re being right now. The written equivalent of doing an impression of someone by wiggling your hands by your head and saying “look at me, I’m so-and-so” in a high-pitched voice. I’m Stacey. I’m going to complain about being hungry but not offer any suggestions of my own, said Stacey.
- Superellipsis: For an extreme dramatic pause. When you want the reader to wait a good 20 seconds before reading the next part of the sentence. Maybe even imagine the lights flickering and some thunder crashing. He paused, cautiously, as he approached the superellipsis. On the other side he found more words!
- Morgan Freemark: Reminds readers that they can read words in any voice they want, so maybe they should read these words in Morgan Freeman’s voice. And so, Kevin took this big swig of vodka and straight-up ran head-first into the wall.

For fake fraternities and sororities, as in:
College Student: Oh, aren’t you adorable! Are you in a fraternity, little boy?
Stewie: Not yet, but I’m thinking about joining Ei Phelta Thi.

Dean: What’s the name of your fraternity?
Eric: It’s... um... it’s, it’s Π Magnum Pi. Started at the University of Hawai‘i.

Melissa: Phoebe, were you ever in a sorority?
Phoebe: Of course! Yeah, I was, uh, um, Thi Mega Tampon.
Melissa: What one?
Phoebe: Yeah, y’know, we were really huge too, but then they had to shut us down when Regina Philange died of alcohol poisoning.
