Diacritics & Fonts

Post by Wizardiaoan »

I've been having the trouble in both Word and NWP with diacritic marks always making the font of the letter Times New Roman. I was trying to use diacritics with the Book Antiqua and Garamond fonts. Now looking at my character viewer I see these fonts really do not have many diacritics. So this isn't really a Nisus question, but can anyone recommend a good book font that has a lot of diacritics besides Times New Roman? I suppose I'll have to play around with those that I see do in the character viewer.

Adobe Garamond

Thanks for the advice, Adobe Garamond Pro looks good to me: 11 point with 1.4 leading for a 6x9 book.

Edit: I didn't like the way numbers are set in the above, and so went with Adobe Calson Pro with the same settings, which I hope has ample diacritics.
