Hi all,

recently Adobe open sourced another font [1] [2]. It’s primarily
intended for use as WOFF but has some interesting properties
nevertheless (like covering *every* unicode code point). Below is
a typescript [3], take it with a grain of salt ;-)

    Note that in spite of the font being tagged “regular”, sans
    is defined too. You won’t notice the difference, I swear!
