Typotheque Webfont Service supports all characters that our fonts support. Look up the particular font that you are interested in, and see all Glyphs that it support. For example, Fedra Sans Book supports over 2500 glyphs.
To make the webfont files as small as possible, we remove some inaccessible glyphs, and users can specify languages to support. Licensed fonts can use as many as 5 languages, trial licences work with a single language. You can also specify custom sets, and preview the glyph set directly.
Typotheque webfonts support all languages supported by their print versions. That’s over 200 languages, including those using Cyrillic, Greek and Arabic scripts.
Regular Typotheque fonts support over 100 languages and advanced typographic features such as small caps, different numeral styles, alternative characters and special symbols. Web browsers, however, can access only a small fraction of those characters. Removing these inaccessible features makes the files much smaller, so they download much quicker.
Up-to-date information about languages currently supported by our fonts is here.
