I am writing an experimental chat application, focused on a clean user interface. It draws several ideas from various sources, but is mostly inspired by the Gargoyle Interactive Fiction player:
Gargoyle cares about typography! In this computer age of typographical poverty, where horrible fonts, dazzling colors, and inadequate white space is God, Gargoyle dares to rebel!
Although I like Gargoyle's default font, Bitstream Charter, I found its Unicode coverage severely lacking (even in the commercial Pro version). For instance, it does not support cyrillics, or some eastern-european characters such as ş/ţ.
Here is what I have so far:
(also note how the base of the "fi" ligature is blurred)
Thus, I ask: which font could I use with better Unicode coverage that isn't too different from Charter, or perhaps better befitting my application in your opinion?
Edit: never mind, I just used Georgia...
