    If you need a freely licensed font, google Noto has you covered. Fedora has it as google-noto-sans-egyptian-hieroglyphs-fonts.noarch, for example

    (this must be a fairly new addition to Noto, since I couldn’t find it last time I ‘researched’ this exact same topic)

              Meh. There are an awful lot of code points, and not so many native speakers of hieroglyphs. If you go through the spec you’ll see all sorts of stuff.

              The question in my mind is why this post has so many upvotes.
