    serbian font

    Hello, i'm looking for a serbian cyrillic font on the internet (a free one would be best). I found some already, but there are always some letters missing!! Sometimes there is no ђ or ћ, sometimes it's the љ and њ missing... Grrr, that's very annoying!
    Can anyone help me?

    I can't even find a font in latin writing that's got all the specific letters... I found one that's got the č and š but no ž nor đ.

    I don't quite understand why that is, but if someone knows some place where i can find that...

    Thank you very much!

    You probably found some Czech font which I suppose doesn't have ž nor đ. About Serbian cyrillic font, unfortunately can't hlp, cause I my fonts find from a friend...

    Czech does have ž. I can't explain why a fontset wouldn't have these letters though.

    I just use those which come with Windows.

    Upgrade to windowz xp and you will have all those characters, because they are in the free windowz unicode fonts. Click start > run, then type charmap and hit enter. You'll be able to type ź ż ž ђ ў and anything else in European languages. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options and you can set up your keyboard for them too.

    It's Vlacko. My nick is Vlacko.
    Of course I can. It means:

    All battles cannot be won. War doesn't win someone who wants to win all battles but one who knows to lose them wisely.

    It's an extract from a novel Чизмаши by Драгослав Михајловић , Serbian writer.

    >Рат не добија онај који

    лучше переводится так

    War is not won by he [OR: the one] who


    >War doesn't win someone who
    this is incorrect and makes no sense in English.
