No More Tofu – NOTO

imgresNoto stands for “No Tofu” or “No More Tofo.” While you might think it’s my latest frustration with a healthy diet, it’s actually the name for Google’s latest attempt to wrestle over 800 natural languages into a single, universal font.

It’s not so easily done – but another worthy pursuit. Plus, Google is actually collaborating with an outside group on it: Monotype.

This is a great project. It checks all kinds of interesting software and language boxes, such as unicode, symbols, glyphs, accents, dialects, minorities and so much more.

Read about it on the Christian Science Monitor website.
