Thanks for the outstanding reply people. :)

I am after a font that has the *widest coverage*. Though I am sure the
letter(.dabase.com) format itself won't suit the locale (for some
time), I just want it to be able to mix and match CJK into my letters
for example. I remember Gentium not having as big as coverage as
Dejavu. Charis SIL does look good...

Though isn't fonts like Dejavu not really a font for printing? Or it
makes little or no difference between "print" and "on screen" worlds?

I am getting a little confused between all the font types like
OpenType or AAT, and how they relate to font rendering in Firefox.

Kind regards,
