Font release note

Khemitic HieraticRegularUrhixidur:Khemitic Hieratic:Version 1.00Khemitic HieraticVersion 1.00 2003-nov-11KhemiticHieraticUrhixidur FontsDaniel U. ThibaultThis font represents the main written script of my Ancient-Egypt-inspired fantasy world, Khemi.

The upper-case characters are the graven, angular version of the script; lower-case is the written, rounded version (this forces some odd mappings for the non-character symbols --see below).

The "e" and "�" (e acute) share the same glyph, as do the "�" (dieresis i) and "y". There is no "q" or "w". There is no "u", but for convenience it is mapped to the "oo" glyph (French "ou"). The "c" stands for the "sh" phoneme. The nasal vowels "an", "in", "on" and "un" are mapped to circumflex a, i, o and u (�, �, �, �). The phonemes "eu" and "ou" are mapped to "�" and "�" (dieresis e and o).

The angular exclamation and question marks are mapped to the inverted exclamation and question marks ("�" and "�"). The angular parentheses are mapped to the brackets ("[" and "]"). The angular comma and semi-colon are mapped to the single and double quotes, respectively ( ' and " ). Finally, there is an angular infinity symbol mapped to the integral.


Khemitic uses a Roman-like system with symbols for 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and so on up to 50 000. Note that subtractive notation isn't used (so nine is written VIIII, not IX). The digits 0 through 4 hold the corresponding successive powers of 10 (1, 10, 100, 1000, 10 000) whilst the digits 5 through 9 hold the corresponding times five values (5, 50, 500, 5000, 50 000), in rounded script. For the angular script, the zero is unchanged, the digits 1..4 are mapped to superscript one through three and the fraction one quarter ( � � � � �); the "times five" glyph is mapped to the fraction three-quarters (�).
