Sanskrit Web (or: Transliteration and Devanagari Fonts for Sanskrit) [Ulrich Stiehl]

Sanskrit Web offers several high-quality transliteration fonts for German, Polish and English-speaking indologists, made by Ulrich Stiehl (b. 1947, Wiesbaden) who lives in Heidelberg. All these fonts are derived from Hermann Zapf's URW Palladio (1990), with appropriate diacritics added for German and Polish indologists: URWPalladioCSXG-R, URWPalladioFF-B, URWPalladioFF-BI, URWPalladioFF-I, URWPalladioFF-R, URWPalladioGGM-B, URWPalladioGGM-BI, URWPalladioGGM-I, URWPalladioGGM-R, URWPalladioIT-B, URWPalladioIT-BI, URWPalladioIT-I, URWPalladioIT-R, URWPalladioREEG-R, URWPalladioSKT-B, URWPalladioSKT-BI, URWPalladioSKT-I, URWPalladioSKT-R, URWPalladioUNI-Bold, URWPalladioUNI-BoldItalic, URWPalladioUNI-Italic, URWPalladioUNI, URWPalladioUS-B, URWPalladioUS-BI, URWPalladioUS-I, URWPalladioUS-R, URWPalladioKUL-B, URWPalladioKUL-BI, URWPalladioKUL-I, URWPalladioKUL-R, Sanskrit 99. The site offers, besides conventional truetype and type 1 fonts, an innovative hybrid OpenType Unicode font for PC and Mac. It can be used either as plain Unicode font or as OT font. On this page, Ulrich offers free versions of two historic fonts, GiacomoFranco (a human figure alphabet based on an original from 1596) and Hypnerotomachia (based on on Aldine font used in Hypnerotomachia Poliphili).
