Everson Mono is a monospaced humanist sans serif Unicode font whose development by Michael Everson began in 1995. At first, Everson Mono was a collection of 8-bit fonts containing glyphs for tables in ISO/IEC 10646; at that time, it was not easy to edit cmaps to have true Unicode indices, and there were very few applications which could do anything with a font so encoded in any case. The original "Everson Mono" had a MacRoman character set, and other versions were named with suffixes: "Everson Mono Latin B", "Everson Mono Currency", "Everson Mono Armenian" and so on. A range of fonts with the character set of the ISO/IEC 8859 series were also made. A large font distributed in 2003 was named "Everson Mono Unicode", but since 2008 the font has been named simply "Everson Mono". At present, there are regular, italic, bold, and bold-italic styles.

Range, characters, version[edit]

Everson Mono version 7.0.0, dated 2014-12-04, contains 9,632 characters (9,659 glyphs). Previous major releases contained fewer characters: version 6.2.1, dated 2012-12-09, contained 9,288 characters (9,314 glyphs); version 5.1.5, dated 2008-12-07, contained 6,343 characters (6,350 glyphs); version 4.1.3, dated 2003-02-13, contained 4,893 characters (4,899 glyphs).
