Why not choose from SIL fonts ? Their i18n support is comprehensive
(and font quality is awesome).
Thanks for the suggestion -- do you have a specific font in mind?
I don't think is that simple. I mentioned SIL fonts because I know they have significant
international coverage AND several of their available font packages includes also the corresponding
web open font format files (WOFF). This can be useful when considering content for both print and
web pages – but I don't know how important is this aspect for TDF (or how much the priority on this
Also, the SIL approach is not "one font fits all" (scripts), but – as can be seen on their
presentation page  – rather individualized by localized areas or languages, each with full or at
least significant Unicode coverage. Of course, this complicates things a bit and implies some extra
work and resources also for the 'end user'.
In this regard, the Murecho font mentioned earlier by Adolfo Jayme Barrientos, although it states
that it has coverage for Latin, it does not include full coverage for Vietnamese; if, for example,
anyone wants to focus and fill in those missing glyphs, the existing Asian part of the font might
confuse things unnecessarily.
Shortly after my previous message, I have done some tests with the available SIL fonts (on
Windows). The result can be seen here:
(and the source file
This is for Latin script only; I have not enough knowledge to test other scripts too. Most of those
SIL fonts are serif style; I would say I like Charis SIL, but this also depends on context, size,
colors, graphics etc.
