The Ethiopic script is used for writing many of the languages of Ethiopia and Eritrea. Ethiopic (U+1200..U+137F) was added to Unicode 3.0. Ethiopic Supplement (U+1380..U+139F) and Ethiopic Extended (U+2D80..U+2DDF) were added to Unicode 4.1. Ethiopic Extended-A (U+AB00..U+AB2F) was added to Unicode 6.0. Abyssinica SIL supports all Ethiopic characters which are in Unicode including the Unicode 6.0 additions. As far as we are aware, all languages using the Ethiopic script are now fully represented in Unicode.

Abyssinica SIL is based on Ethiopic calligraphic traditions. This release is a regular typeface, with no bold or italic version available or planned.
