Our standard Ffontiau Cymraeg pack contains the fonts
MEU Cymru first developed and published the Ffontiau Cymraeg Welsh fonts and keyboard driver pack in 1993. They have been used thoughout Wales in that period by national and local government, by publishers, utitily companies and a wide range of public and voluntary bodies as well as extensively in schools.
Even today when Unicode fonts are included in computers with many of these including the Welsh accented characters, it is not easy to access these characters from the keyboard, so our AcenSyml2.1 keyboard driver is still an important tool in keeping the Welsh language up to date with current practice.
The PC fonts are fully conformant to ISO-IR 6, the Welsh variant of the international standard, ISO/IEC 8859-1 (Latin1), They are also conformant to the Celtic-specific international standard ISO/IEC 8859-14 (Latin 8).
The Mac OS fonts are conformant to the Mac OS Celtic standard developed by MEU Cymru and Everson Gunn Teoranta.
