Ethiopic Typeface

In this set, there are several typefaces which are also bundled with WashRa. They all support Ethiopic standard included in Unicode 3.0 except the Sabaean script, whose encoding isn't standardized yet. For your convenience the fonts are distributed in three packages; the font "Ethiopia Jiret" for those who are interested only for it, the font "Sabaean", and the entire set. Downloading and installation instructions are given at the end of this page.

Downloading the Fonts

The process of making the fonts useful under your system involves three steps--downloading, decompressing, and finally installing the font files. Please note once again, all the fonts are included under "WashRa Fonts". If you download this package, you don't have to do the others.


If you are using Win XP, Linux, or Mac, you should be able to uncompress the files with out the need for external utility, but in case for some reason if you need a utility to uncompress zipped files, you may download the FreeZip tool: FreeZip
