I am writing a book on the generation of PDF files from Java/.NET using
the F/OS library iText(Sharp). One of the chapters deals with fonts.
I have parsed the 'PACE' page with the word Peace in different languages
(http://www.columbia.edu/~fdc/pace/) and I have made a txt file with
the languages sorted alphabetically, followed by the word peace and
the country where the language is spoken.
(Make sure to get it in UTF-8)
Then I have written a standalone Java program that parses the text
file and produces a PDF document with all the data.
To display the word 'peace', I used arialuni.ttf.
Unfortunately not all the characters that are needed are in this font.
For instance: I am missing the word in Ge'ez, Etruscan, etc...
Now comes my question: is there a font (ttf, ttc, otf,...) that contains
the complete set of unicode characters so that my program can embed
them in a PDF? If my question is utopic, please let me know.
I'm a Java programmer, not a font specialist.
Also if you find errors in the PDF or txt, please let me know.
