Currency symbols (was: Looking for a font containing unicode range 2600-26FF)

    This reminds me, I have a modified version of Baramond (TrueType) wherein I added all of the currency symbols at 20A0 - 20B5. I did this because it is hard to find most of these in most fonts and I needed them for testing. (Admittedly, some of them are probably absent from most fonts for good reasons.)

    It seems to me like Baramond is in a state where it should be legal to do this at least in a de facto sort of way (i.e., it is ubiquitous all over the Internet with no one claiming ownership), but I am not a lawyer.

    Unless someone thinks it is inappropriate, and if anyone is interested, I would be glad to make the font available (via http). I would welcome criticisms of my work, but please understand I didn't have a lot of time to spend and don't claim it to be any sort of masterpiece.

    I did the work with Font Creator Program.

    Best regards,
    Gary Grosso

    Hello Team,

    I'm recently writing on my dissertation at the University of Applied Scinece Ausburg about web-based administration of genealogical data. During my research on this topic I stumbled about the unicode range 2600-26FF (Miscellaneous Symbols) which includes gender (range 26A2-26A9) and genealogical (range 26AD-26B1) symbols. I would like to work with these symbols within my dissertation but couldn't find any appropriate font providing these symbols.

    For this reason I would like to ask you if it is possible to receive the particular font(s) you used in the latest "U2600.pdf" which contains the character code table for this specific range.

    Or do you have any other idea how to include the symbols into my report?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Kind regards from germany,

    Ines Göhlert
