a typeface by Feòrag NicBhrìde

Symbats is a Pagan dingbats font. It contains lots of pentagrams, a full set of astrological glyphs, solar and lunar symbols, and much more. These are arranged in a manner which is logical if you are using a British keyboard (see the included Readme for details). Version 2.0 adds Ogham and Runic characters, as well as duplicates of the astrological symbols encoded according to the Unicode standard. These characters can be accessed by either choosing an appropriate keyboard layout in the International preferences panel, or via the Special Characters.../Glyphs menu option (the name seems to vary depending on the application).

The image below gives a sample of some of the symbols included in the font:

The typeface comes in two 'flavours'. The OTF version is PostScript-flavoured OpenType; the TTF is TrueType-flavoured OpenType. Both should work on MacOS X, Linux and Windows systems. If you use MacOS 8 or 9, only the OTF version will work on these systems. If you have a PostScript printer, you should also choose the OTF version.
