Dear fellow searchers,
as I followed

I saw the links guiding to cyrillic truetype fonts for Windows an Mac.
This reminded me on a problem, many people have with the special "phonetic
characters" (IPA-supplement) that are provided by PAF, when a GEDCOM-file
(UTF-8) is exported. Whithout PAF, you need to install an appropiate
Unicode-font to read them.
In the past the font "Arial Unicode MS" (part of MS-Office) was freely
downloadable from the web. This font includes those characters. Beside it
was not very senseful to install such a huge (32MB) font for just using only
a very little part of it, Microsoft has stopped providing Arial Unicode MS
Does anybody know a truetype font that provides the PAF characters?
