Runes for Family Use: User Manual
This font should be used with either caps lock or all lowercase, the former with serifs and the latter more realistic. As there is no runic "Z", typing one will instead provide stan, for "St". The numbers 0 - 9 provide other runes, listed below:
0: þorn "þ" "th"
1: eihwaz " ï "
2: yngvi "ŋ" "ng"
3: gyfu "/x/" "ch"
4: ear "ea"
5: kealk "kk" "ck"
6: ger "j"
7: os "o"
8: ac "a"
9: haglaz "h"
Just use shift on numbers for the caps lock version of those.
In this font, every letter corresponds to the same-sounded rune in the Futhark. Uppercase for the Elder, lowercase for the Younger. Extras have been assigned to runes with non-english sounds. Thurisaz is Q, eihwaz is X, inguz is C, and jera is both J and Y.
Covering the Unicode "Runic" letter set (from U+16a0 to U+16f0), except for the subsets "Tolkienian extensions" and "Cryptogrammic letters". Including Scandinavian runic numerals (number keys, U+0030 to U+0039). Additional runic punctuation marks, alternative glyphs, and private-use characters have been ascribed to free slots in "Latin Extended-D" (U+a7d0 to U+a7de), such as the magical ligature rune Alu or frequent (or, frankly, more aesthetic) alloglyphs for e.g. Kauna, Jeran, Sigel, Ehwaz, Mannaz, Ingwaz, Dagaz/Dæg, Stan, and others. +++ This font has been designed to meet the highest standards of runic aesthetics, glyph regularity and harmony, as well as scientific usefulness. As a specific advantage over other available non-FontStruct runic fonts, this font will always be equal in height to letters of other popular fonts at the same point size (Times New Roman, Linux Libertine), so as not to cause trouble with line height e.g. when writing a scientific paper.This is a clone
