Sites of Interest
We have provided links to sites of interest in multilingual computing and other closely related areas of scripts and languages as well as a guide for finding language fonts on the Internet.
Sites on Scripts and Writing Systems
These are some sites on the Web with information about scripts, writing systems and orthographies.
