The Apparatus SIL font family was designed to provide most of the symbols needed to reproduce the textual apparatus found in major editions of Greek & Hebrew biblical texts. It is based on SIL Charis, a font family designed for optimum clarity and compactness when printed at small point sizes. This assures that both Charis SIL and Apparatus SIL can be used together in documents with a consistency of style. Most lines of text in the apparatus can be reproduced by combining the Greek and Hebrew fonts, transliteration (using a font such as Charis SIL), and the Apparatus SIL font.
