Arial Unicode MS
Arial™ Unicode, also know as Arial Unicode MS, is a Unicode™ compliant font that contains nearly 50,000 characters and supports many languages. The Arial Unicode font includes support for the Asian languages (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean) as well as for all the languages used in major commercial markets. The Arial Unicode font is distributed with the Microsoft Office suite of products and is used to provide default language support for many languages, including Arabic, Hebrew, Thai, Vietnamese, Hindi (Devanagari) and other Indic languages.

Arial Unicode is a contemporary sans serif design with humanist characteristics designed by Robin Nicholas and Patricia Saunders. The overall treatment of Arial's curves is softer and fuller than in most industrial-style sans serif faces. The Arial Unicode font has terminal strokes that are cut on the diagonal, which helps to give the face a less mechanical appearance.

Arial Unicode is a 22MB file, containing glyphs for all code points within The Unicode Standard, Version 2.1. This makes Arial Unicode a valuable resource for software developers. (Developers can obtain font license information on Arial Unicode from Monotype Imaging.

NOTE: You must have an application program that supports Unicode-encoded complex script fonts, such as OpenOffice or Microsoft Office for Windows (Mac Office does not currently support complex script fonts). Adobe Creative Suite users must have the Middle Eastern version, or a plug-in such as IndicPlus.
