Most amazing font so far, the Alphabetum font, for ancient languages. It
is now possible to compose text with languages that disappeared 5000
years ago. I have to say all my respect for such a nice and usefull
work! Thanks from university researchers that had to redraw all
archeologic inscriptions found on sites. Now those texts can circulates.
