This kind of list could be used to set font-family styles for CSS, if you want to be reasonably sure what the user will see, or it could be used just to find a font you like for a particular script.
I’ve updated the page to show the fonts added in Windows8. This is the list:
- Aldhabi (Urdu Nastiliq)
- Urdu Typesetting (Urdu Nastiliq)
- Gadugi (Cherokee/Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics)
- Myanmar Text (Myanmar)
- Nirmala UI (10 Indic scripts)
There were also two additional UI fonts for Chinese, Jhenghei UI (Traditional) and Yahei UI (Simplified), which I haven’t listed. Also Microsoft Uighur acquired a bold font.
See the blog post for the first version or the page for more information.

Patrick Andries pointed out that Tifinagh using the Windows Ebrima font was missing from the list. Not any more.
