need a font with a specific glyph

Aug 04, 2012 at 12:07

Please help.

I am looking for a specific font (not the TITUS, that means not a Times New Roman based font) containing the latin letter E/e with ring above.

Thanks a lot!

ering? What language is that? Or do you mean Edot and edot, Ė ė? See http://www.dafont.com/andika-basic.font

I don't know any language that uses an Ering. I need it as a kind phonetic symbol

The only occurrence I found is in Cheyenne language : (sorry, link in French only) http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/E%CC%8A

Didn't we have a similar thread recently ?

That is edot, not ering.

That was Cherokee.

You're right, I found it in the meantime, I must have mixed indian tribes in my mind

No ering in Unicode.

Nope. Found one font with Cheyenne characters, but also that one uses the edot.

Have not found an ering in any font for phonetics. edot, yes. So I suggest you take the edot or forget it.

How about this ? Many seem to have that "ering" made out of a ring misplaced over an "e", but for some it seems to be ok.

Only two or three show the ring above the 'e' in a somewhat correct position. None does it with the 'E'. So the ring is handled as a deadkey and can only be placed at a fixed position. No good. I checked those with a more or less correct position over the 'e' and, indeed, the character is not there. As Claude already said : "No ering in Unicode".
One could of course in a unicode font change the ė (e with dotaccent) with an e with a ring but that would make the font unusable for any use where the ė is needed.

Thanks to all!

It's the sans-serif Andika - http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=Andika_download
Another font, that looks... ah, quite elegant, is Gentium Plus - http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=Gentium_download
