Does anyone know where I can download/acquire a good font for Ugaritic?

Thanks.

Hi, thanks.

I have downloaded the font - and extracted it - but I can't get it to display.

All it comes up with is standard English abcdef - etc.

Have I missed a step?

... HERE (http://www.historian.net/files.htm) and HERE (http://reinhold.kainhofer.com/rk_fonts/). There is also Logos' Shibboleth (http://www.logos.com/shibboleth).

Thanks Mark. The first link worked great - the font is loaded.

The second link didn't work because I use Windows 7, and the font initiating system is for an older version.

"Logos" didn't work - but they said it was a problem with setup of Windows.

But, if I can get one to work, that is good.

(P.S. Tried Logos' Shibboleth again, and it worked fine. Don't know what happened the first time. Tried it out and it looks great. Not only Ugaritic, but other languages as well. Many thanks Mark.)

Sorry, Jim. The font I directed you to had the Ugaritic glyphs tacked on at the end of the Unicode library. They wouldn't have been readily visible or available.

You might also try the font listed here: http://www.bibleplaces.com/paleo_hebrew_fonts.htm

I thought we had permission to include these ancient Hebrew fonts with BibleWorks, though I might be mistaken. We have permission to include the ancient Greek fonts, and they are in the BibleWorks 9 root directory.

Blessings,
Glenn
