XSerif UnicodeRegularDTP- XSerif Unicode Version 1XSerif UnicodeVersion 1.00XSerifUnicodeCreated by Type-Designer 3.0SlovoIn addition to the codepages mentioned in "Charset/Unicode" table, this font contains Old Russian characters (Yat', Fita, Izhitsa) and combining diacritical marks with it's right UNICODE numbers.
There are also further characters used by Trediakovskij in 18 century and some characters for transliteration in user defined UNICODE area.
You can use these characters only if you have a UNICODE-based text processor (e.g. MS Word 97).
When I wanted to create some special fonts for students of slavistics (e. g. for transliteration an Old Russian) I looked for a font with a "Times�"-like typeface that I could use as a base for my new fonts. But I found that all quality fonts are copyrighted and the quality of free and public domain fonts on Internet didn't please me, so I decided to create a new font with a slightly changed "Times�"-like typeface that I called "XSerif". Most common letters as "A" or "H" probably look like they do in every similar typeface, except slightly different poportions, serifs and weight, but some letters as cyrillic "zh" or cyrillic "l" are originally designed because I didn't like their shape in other "Times�"-like typefaces.
There is only Regular typeface existing at this time.
