Fonts for Middle English texts

The Middle English texts presented here require the fonts Imed, JuniusModern, OrmDemo, OrmDemo2 and Wingdings. If a character does not appear in the shape it is supposed to in the test table below, you will need to install the corresponding font on your computer. Wingdings used to be a standard Windows font, which can be downloaded below if you don't have it on your computer. JuniusModern could be downloaded from Peter Baker's web page at the University of Virginia, but seem's to have vanished; it can now be downloaded below.

Windows versions of Imed, Wingdings, OrmDemo and OrmDemo2 as well as JuniusModern can be accessed here.

If you're working in one of the University's computer labs, do not attempt to install the fonts yourself, but contact someone in charge. If all else fails, contact johannes@english.su.se.

Note for Macintosh users: due to deep-rooted differences in character coding between Windows and the Macintosh operating system, the Middle English words will look odd on a Mac even if you have the right fonts installed. Parallel pages coded for the Mac will be made available whenever possible: note, however, that at the moment we have no Mac version of the fonts Imed, OrmDemo and OrmDemo2.
