Any suggestions for a body font suitable for a dictionary, or what features comprises a good font selection for such a use?
The dictionary in question is Aramaic-English, would be around 1500 pages, and would also include (lots of) Hebrew and (occasional) Greek characters, so Opentype solutions which include those ranges would be gravy.
The newest Oxford Dictionary uses Frutiger together with FF Parable, which does the job and is legible. I'd love to use FF Strada for this but don't know how well it would reproduce at small sizes. Any input would be appreciated.
