Constructium

Constructium is a free font for supporting constructed scripts, as encoded in the Under-ConScript Unicode Registry. It is based on SIL Gentium and thus released under the SIL Open Font License.

Constructium is ideal for mixed Latin/Greek/Cyrillic, IPA, and conlang text, thus well suited for conlangers' web sites. (Be careful. Web site creation software, such as Dreamweaver, may not like Private Use Area characters. It is better to stick to a plain text editor.)

You can see Constructium's character repertoire here. In addition to most Latin and Greek, basic Cyrillic, and IPA extensions, Constructium supports the following conscripts:

I would very much like to add support for even more conscripts in the future.

(Please note, however, that Constructium can't do completely accurate rendering of conscripts that need typography beyond that of simple Latin text. For the scripts that Constructium supports, this means Tengwar and Glaitha-B. Although modern font technologies are at least somewhat capable of this, I do not yet know how to utilize these technologies.)

Important: As of May 4, 2010, Constructium and Fairfax use the updated 2001 encoding for Tengwar and Cirth rather than the older 1998 encoding. If you have Tengwar or Cirth text written using older versions of Constructium or Fairfax, you can use Kreative Recode to re-encode your text.

Important: As of Feb 9, 2013, Constructium and Fairfax use the updated 2013 encoding for Sylabica rather than the older 2007 encoding. If you have Sylabica text written using older versions of Constructium or Fairfax, you can use Kreative Recode to re-encode your text.

If you have a modern browser or have Constructium already installed, you should be able to see the text below. (Whether you can read the text is another thing entirely.)

Fairfax

For applications requiring monospaced fonts (terminal windows, vim, code editors, etc.), you may want to use the font Fairfax, a 6x12 bitmap font that supports everything Constructium supports, and more!
