Special Note for Mac OS 9 & X Users:

Mac 10 includes basic fonts and keyboards. For most users this is all that will be necessary. To engage the fonts and keyboards in system 10.* go to System Preferences and choose International. Choose Input Menu and you will see a long list of input options. In some cases you are provided the option of the typewriter layout of the language and a layout more user friendly to North Americans. For example, for Russian you may choose Russian which uses the typewriter layout found in Russia or Russian-Phonetic which uses the homophonic layout preferred by many Americans.

Setting up fonts and keyboard drivers for Macintosh

  • Font Section. The font section organized primarily by codepage. Five separate codepages are listed plus a catch-all, sixth category. Within each listing, fonts are divided into True Type and Postscript. A few bitmapped fonts are listed either because they are quite common or offer unusual features.
  • Keyboard Section. Keyboards are listed by codepage.
  • Most of the links on this page are to compressed files. You will need a decompression utility such as Stuffit Expander to decompress them.
  • Links to font archives.
