For the first time in the entire history of Unicode standard, the full
encoding range for dingbats (U + 2700 – U + 27BF) is now covered by a
complete, contemporary quality font. Erler Dingbats is a spin-off of the
distinguished FF Dingbats 2.0 family, and was designed as a special
collaboration between designers Johannes Erler and Henning Skibbe.
To help support and encourage the use of the Unicode standard, publisher
FSI FontShop International is giving away the Erler Dingbats completely
free of charge.
FSI invites not only private users, but also OS developers, to include
the Erler Dingbats in their font collection.

Perhaps these fonts could be made available to the TeX community as
suggested above. Hence this email.
