Manufacturer name
Galilee Unicode is an orthotic, bicameral Greek font intended for use with koine/Hellenistic Greek. It is a Unicode font (developed from the [non-Unicode] Galilee font, which used the Latin keyboard [Greek glyphs assigned to Latin characters].) Designed to match the font metrics and general style of the Trebuchet font and optimized for use on screen or with a video projector and on the web. Fulll manual hinting (including delta hinting) is included for individual characters. The standard ASCII characters are also included for compatibility purposes (some programs "complain" if they do not find these characters present in a font). These are NOT intended for use and they do not necessarily match the overall style of the font. (They are simply the glyphs from the FontLab FreeSans font, reduced just slightly so as not to exceed the height of the Galilee glyphs.)
