Code2000 is a shareware font. It is a Unicode-based font, as are many modern computer fonts. Code2000 is one of the larger fonts available and the latest build has over 60000 glyphs covering 52786 characters.
The current version of the font has glyphs covering all of the CJK ideographs in the Basic Multilingual Plane of Unicode. (Except about twenty which were recently added.) Of course, much work remains on the CJK in Code2000. There are still many rough, filler glyphs among the CJK ideographs, but the latest version is much improved over the previous version.
Code2000 can display most symbols and many of the Unicode scripts reasonably well. There are at least rudimentary OpenType tables for many of the complex Indic scripts, and some of the OpenType Indic tables are fairly well advanced. But Code2000 doesn’t yet cover Sinhala or Tibetan. Of the Philippine scripts, only Buhid is covered by Code2000. Although Code2000 has many glyphs for Arabic, Code2000 can not yet be recommended for Arabic text display. Code2000 can populate charts for Oriya and Kannada — but can not yet properly display text in those scripts.
Code2000 is expected to work on modern operating systems. Code2000 is a proportional font. If you need a good monospaced font covering many ranges of Unicode, please visit Everson Typography's web pages. Code2000 is a “work-in-process”, which means it just keeps getting better!
