GentiumPlus Compact (This font is created by TypeTuner Web, by setting the "Line spacing" feature to "Tight", and will not be able to be TypeTuned again)

Warning

Any of our Roman fonts that have had the linespacing changed to a tighter setting could potentially have "clipping" of diacritics if there is more than one diacritic above a tall character. This is normally just a screen problem. When the page is printed, the diacritics will print.
