For those of you in need of a BDF font containing glyphs useful for Unicode
text, for X11 or something else, version 1.6 of the ClearyU font is now

  o This is a 12 point, 100dpi, proportional font.

  o Does not contain glyphs for Han, Hangul, Tibetan, or any of the Indic

  o Contains all the glyphs needed to minimally support the Arabic portions
     of Unicode. Does not contain the ARABIC PRESENTATION FORMS-A range

     NOTE: The Arabic glyphs are being replaced soon, so effort spent cleaning
     them up or changing them might be wasted.

  o Consists of 4204 glyphs at the moment.

This version fixes some spacings in Armenian, Georgian, Lao, and Thai, fixes
some Greek glyphs, adds some new glyphs to the Private Use Area section
(cu-pua12.bdf), and adds the alternate Greek glyphs (cu-alt12.bdf) with the
curved PERISPOMENI instead of the the one that looks like a tilde, and swaps
the order of the Georgian alternate forms (title Mxedruli and lower Xucuri) to
make access more consistent.

I have started making text samples using the font which can be seen at:

Any improvements or changes you wish to make are welcome, just let me know
about them!
