Monotype Imaging Has Released The Arial Unicode MS Bold Typeface, Comprised Of Nearly 50,000 Characters To Support Major Commercial Markets Worldwide. (Graphic: Business Wire)

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has introduced the Arial® Unicode® MS Bold typeface. Comprised of nearly 50,000 characters, the newest addition to the Arial suite marks a typographical first – the ability to use a true, bold version of Arial Unicode.

Arial Unicode MS Bold complements Arial Unicode MS, the regular weight of the same design, which is included in Microsoft® Office® products and is shipped in various applications.

“The expression, ‘everything but the kitchen sink,’ applies to Arial Unicode, as it contains thousands of characters used in major commercial markets across the globe,” said Allan Haley, director of words and letters at Monotype Imaging. “Designers and developers can now turn to a genuine, bold version of Arial Unicode, without having to apply a computer-generated affect to achieve a bold look, or switch to a different typeface. Whether the intent is to create typographic hierarchy or harmony, Arial Unicode and Arial Unicode Bold will work beautifully together.”

Like its Arial Unicode counterpart, which Monotype Imaging has licensed to hundreds of companies worldwide for use in millions of products that provide multilingual support, Arial Unicode Bold is a sans serif design that contains all the characters, ideographs and symbols defined in version 2.1 of the Unicode Standard, the character encoding system defined by the Unicode Consortium. The Arial Unicode fonts can also serve as fallback fonts, which are used when a system encounters characters that are not contained in other available fonts. For example, a user creates a newsletter with an Arabic font and sends it to another user, who displays the document on a different computer. Arabic characters not contained in the viewer’s system will then display using Arial Unicode.

A wide range of languages are supported by Arial Unicode fonts, including Western European languages, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, Thai, Vietnamese, Greek, Cyrillic and Indic languages. Arial Unicode fonts are an extension to the original Arial typefaces created by Robin Nicholas of Monotype Imaging and Patricia Saunders.
