psf-unifont: PSF (console) version of GNU Unifont with APL support

 This contains a PSF font (Unifont-APL8x16.psf) as a console frame
 buffer font with a subset of Unifont for use with GNU APL and other
 APL implementations. The font is installed in "/usr/share/consolefonts/".
 This PSF font is only suitable for running in console mode, not under the
 X Window System.
 A PSF font allows a maximum of 512 glyphs. The glyph subset in this
 font includes ASCII, Latin-1, "oe" and "OE" ligatures for French, the
 Euro sign, Unicode Box Drawing, Unicode Block Elements, plus various
 glyphs for APL support and some other miscellaneous glyphs. The font
 is monospaced, 8 pixels wide by 16 pixels tall.
 Consider using the TrueType version instead (ttf-unifont) if you are
 not running in console mode, because that version is scalable to any
 point size and has proper combining character support.

unifont: font with a glyph for each visible Unicode Plane 0 character

 This package is a convenient way to install both the PCF bitmap
 version and the scalable TrueType outline version of "Unifont"
 (intended for general-purpose use) and "Unifont Sample" (which contains
 combining circles to use for illustration purposes). It also installs
 a copy of unifont.hex and related files in /usr/share/unifont.
 GNU Unifont was designed to render something besides an empty box
 for each visible Unicode character in the Basic Multilingual Plane
 (Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing
 scripts. This font looks best at 12pt.
 Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters
 change shape depending on their position in a word, or such as
 Mongolian, which is written vertically) will not render perfectly.
 The philosophy behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful
 is better than an empty box for a unknown glyph.
