PCF (bitmap) version of the GNU Unifont

This is a bitmap font in a standard X11 format. The font provides a glyph for each visible code point (character) in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts. This font looks best at 12pt.

Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which is written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than an empty box for a unknown glyph.

Consider using the TrueType version instead (ttf-unifont), because that version is scalable to any point size.
