Gentium Basic 1.102
Although the Gentium Basic and Gentium Book Basic fonts are older than the Gentium Plus font, and have a much smaller character repertoire, they have some wonderful features that are still missing from the main Gentium family.
New features include:
- Bold Italic!
- The slightly-heavier Book family!
The Basic fonts support a subset of the smart font features that the Gentium Plus font supports. Those features are:
- Capital Eng alternates
- Literacy alternates
- Capital Y-hook alternate
- Capital N-left-hook alternate
- Modifier apostrophe alternate
- Modifier colon alternate
- Open o alternate
- Vietnamese-style diacritics
The Basic fonts provide less support than Gentium Plus in the following ways:
- fewer characters
- no Cyrillic
- no Greek
See Character Set Support for further information on the characters Gentium Basic Supports.
