SIL OPEN FONT LICENSE Version 1.1 - 26 February 2007
The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership with others.
The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded, redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

Update 10/17/2016. I’ve fixed some of the curves in a few characters that I missed while enlarging the font. I’ve slightly altered a couple of the Cyrillic glyphs, some math glyphs that were offset, updated and added more currency symbols, relocated some glyphs, plus added some new glyphs, combining diacritics, and punctuation as per the latest version of Unicode.
Deḥuti /de.ˈꭓuː.tiː/, formerly Tehuti, is a modern font predominantly based off Dwiggins’ Electra, with touches from Palatino, Janson, and Goudy old style. The change from T to D in the name reflects the actual pronunciation of Tehuti, as the T is actually Ṭ, i.e., D in Kheimian. Also, given that this version has had significant alterations to its design, making it more like Electra, as well as quite a few additions and program fixes, it is essentially a new font; thus, the name change. Overall, Dehuti became what I had tried to achieve with Tehuti, i.e., a font that supports Native American and African languages, and one that is harmonized in all aspects. I did this because of my interest in linguistics, because there are so few fonts that support such languages, and because the ones that do aren’t entirely harmonized in their design. One particular aspect to Dehuti’s harmonization is my approach to the design of the Greek and Cyrillic glyphs, which have a more Latin-like feel, i.e., like Latin, their lowercase glyphs are uncial-based, given that nearly all of the languages that use these alphabets utilize the Latin form of these glyphs. Others are the additional characters, such as the hash tag, the math symbols, the arrows, et cetera, all of which are balanced with the lowercase and numbers. Also, the italicized a’s mirror the regular a’s, so as to be easily distinguished by the various languages that use them. All extra features, including alternate characters, et cetera, are available via open type tables, or, for those programs without access to open type, are in the Private Use Area at the end of the font. For those interested, Open or Libre Office can access all glyphs using Insert -> Special Character.
Since Dehuti is a Unicode font, I will update it on occasion, so check back for newer versions.
Notes: 1) The modifier letters are set at the optimal height for text; they are not superiors, but numerators, meaning that if you need to add additional letters to text use the numerator table, i.e., for abbreviations as in 5th, 1ère, and so on. The standard superiors are set for math. 2) A fontlog is included that lists the code points for all the additional characters I’ve added, i.e., those not listed below.
• Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic, all of which are designed to be interchangeable
• Redesigned click consonants that have accompanying uppercase versions in the PUA
• Redesigned Esh, Ezhes, and Yoghs
• Extended punctuation and brackets. For the uppercase middle dot, use (2E31). I placed the Teuthonista double bar on (2E3F). For those unfamiliar with the “reversed” question mark (2E2E), it is used for ironic statements.
• Most currency symbols, including the newest additions, such as bitcoin
• Fractions, as well as a ton of math symbols, arrows, geometric shapes, and pictographs with some alternate designs in the bold versions
• Latin superscripts, subscripts, numerators (with additions for modifier letters), and denominators, which are ordered as listed
• Proportional (lining) numbers, which are in the PUA, and are followed by the tabular styles of both
• Redesigned turned As, Alphas, short a (turned v), rams horn, small capital r, inverted small capital r, and turned w and y, which more so reflect their pronunciations
• Redesigned velar, palatal and retroflex characters
• Redesigned glottal stops. Their new design resembles curved 7s, i.e., they lack the stem, which is preferred in the languages that use them, and are also set at lowercase height. If you need to use cased versions, those are (0241 & 0242), and (01B8 & 01B9) for the voiced pharyngeal fricatives, i.e., the reversed Ezhes.
• IPA, UPA, & Teuthonista (Latin Extended-E)
• Capital small capital I (A7AE), counterpart to small capital ɪ (026A)
• J with crossed-tail (A7B2), counterpart to (029D)
• Latin Chis (A7B3 & AB53), Betas (A7B4 & A7B5), and Omegas (A7B6 & A7B7)
• Cyrillic alternates for Macedonian, Serbian, and Bulgarian
• SIL additions, which start at F1A1: 1) Nine-step tone markers for African orthographies (F1F1-F1F9); 2) Retroflex D with hook (F20D), counterpart to (1D91); 3) Z with palatal hook (F234), counterpart to (1D8E); 4) ezh with palatal hook (F235); and, 5) a & A for Kaolib (F247 & F248).
