Coptic Fonts Standard
This is a project for the standardization of Coptic Fonts so as to create
a unified Character Code. In other words to construct a unified system for
placement of letters, djinkims, abbreviations, overlines, underlines,
punctuation marks etc. on the keyboard.
After many months of labor, a Standard has been decided on and a sample Coptic Font has been produced.
Using the Coptic Standard Font Standard arrangement, one can type all Coptic Letters (including letters in Achmimic Dialect) in almost a totally pronunciation based system that facilitates both typing & education. Also, all types of djinkims Bohairic, Sahidic, Achmimmic could be written. Arabic numerals, simple mathematical marks & modern punctuations are present. Ecclesiastical common abbreviations are present on Alt keys.
We ask new Coptic font creators to cooperate by using this standard in order to unify & standardize Coptic fonts.
The CS Coptic Fonts are freely available for download. You are also free to share these fonts with your anyone provided you distribute the package as a whole and not just the fonts.
