There is a site from U. of Oregon which has many non-Western fonts. Most
are for the Mac, but there are a few Windows ones scattered about. All are
freeware, from what I can tell. Some are better than others, so you'll have
to download and see. What I have found is that the large the file size of
the download, the better the font you'll get (also the longer the download
will take). Some of the languages include:
American Sign Language, Arabic, Celtic, Chinese, Coptic, Hebrew, Icelandic,
Japanese, Korian, Russian, Turkish, and many others, including Klingon,
Romulan, and Tolkein (for those Trekies and Hobbits out there).
The URL is http://babel.uoregon.edu/yamada/fonts.html
Hope this helps,

By all means leave the road when you wish. That is precisely the use
of a road: to reach individually chosen points of departure. By all
means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and
well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
