SIL Apparatus Fonts

Apparatus and Unicode

This SIL Apparatus Font System is a pre-Unicode or “legacy” font system. These fonts are superseded by the Unicode-encoded Apparatus SIL.

The SIL Apparatus Fonts were designed to provide most of the symbols needed to reproduce the textual apparatus found in major editions of Greek & Hebrew biblical texts. The fonts include:

The basic ASCII character set plus some international characters





Superscript characters



Certain Greek, Hebrew, Gothic and other letters used for manuscripts



Special punctuation



Other Signa and Sigla used in documenting manuscript contents



Like the SIL Greek Trans and SIL Hebrew Trans fonts, these fonts are based on SIL Charis, a font designed for optimum clarity and compactness when printed at small point sizes. This assures that all the fonts can be used together in documents with a consistency of style.
Most lines of text in the apparatus can be reproduced by combining the Greek and Hebrew fonts, the transliteration fonts, and the four faces (Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic) of the SIL Apparatus fonts. Here is a note from The Greek New Testament (United Bible Societies, Fourth Revised Edition, Second Printing, 1994) regarding I Peter 3:15, reproduced using the SIL Galatia and SIL Apparatus font families:



The SIL Apparatus Fonts are free of charge.
