Alan Wood’s Unicode Resources

Unicode fonts for Macintosh OS 9 computers


The Macintosh operating system has included Unicode support since version 8.5, and this allows applications to see and use characters in both Macintosh and Windows TrueType fonts that are outside the 233 characters in the MacRoman character set. Sadly, there are very few applications that are able to access these extra characters. Adobe InDesign can use the extra characters in Macintosh Unicode fonts, but it does not support the keyboard drivers in Apple’s Language Kits, and the only way to enter the extra characters is to use the Insert Characters dialog box, available from the Type menu. The WorldText text editor and 2 experimental applications (MLTE Demo and SUE) have implemented the facility to use Windows Unicode fonts under Mac OS 9. The Web browser Opera 6 can use Unicode resource-fork fonts

Mac OS 9 is supplied with several Unicode TrueType fonts that contain more characters than you can normally see, Microsoft supplies a Unicode TrueType version of Tahoma with Word 98 and Office 98, and Adobe supplies a Unicode OpenType version of TektonPro with InDesign 1.5.

Most of the Macintosh applications that include Unicode support require Apple’s Language Kits, which employ proprietary character sets and map to and from Unicode as necessary. This applies to the Web browsers iCab, Internet Explorer and Netscape, the HTML editors BBEdit 6 and Muwse, and Microsoft Word 98 and Word 2001.

You need Unicode fonts (or mapping via Language Kits) to display many of the characters for which there are HTML 4.0 character entity references, and to display the Unicode test pages.

You can find out if your Macintosh TrueType fonts support Unicode by using TrueEdit and examining the cmap table.

The following list of Unicode fonts is probably not comprehensive, it is just the ones that I have acquired with Mac OS 9 on my iMac and various retail and trial applications. Not all of the characters in a given range will always be present in a font; you can use a utility such as True Edit to see exactly which characters are included. Some fonts contain a few characters from ranges that are not listed, extra glyphs such as lower-case numerals, and non-Unicode characters. You can find details of a few more resource-fork fonts that work with OS 9 on the page about fonts for Mac OS X 10.
