do you know of any reasonable Fraktur (aka. blackletter) font,
preferably shareware or freeware? By "reasonable", I mean the
following minimum requirements:
- encoding complies with Unicode,
- font conprises most of Latin-1 (at the very least letters a-z, A-Z,
the umlauts äÄöÖüÜ, the Sharp S (ß), the digits and the punctuation
- contains LONG S in its proper place (U+017F),
- contains low-9, and high-6, quotation marks (U+201E, U+201C, U+201A,
- contains the mandatory ligatures ch, ck, ff, fi, fl, ft, ll, ſch, ſi,
ſſ, ſt, ß and tz, and handles them automatically.
Nice to have:
- has a double-hyphen (akin to "=") for U+2010, U+2011, and 00AD.
So far, I have not yet seen a reasonable Fraktur font. My recent note to
Waldenfont (cc: Unicode-List) is meant as an attempt to find one.
