Covering the Unicode "Runic" letter set (from U+16a0 to U+16f0), except for the subsets "Tolkienian extensions" and "Cryptogrammic letters". Including Scandinavian runic numerals (number keys, U+0030 to U+0039). Additional runic punctuation marks, alternative glyphs, and private-use characters have been ascribed to free slots in "Latin Extended-D" (U+a7d0 to U+a7de), such as the magical ligature rune Alu or frequent (or, frankly, more aesthetic) alloglyphs for e.g. Kauna, Jeran, Sigel, Ehwaz, Mannaz, Ingwaz, Dagaz/Dæg, Stan, and others. +++ This font has been designed to meet the highest standards of runic aesthetics, glyph regularity and harmony, as well as scientific usefulness. As a specific advantage over other available non-FontStruct runic fonts, this font will always be equal in height to letters of other popular fonts at the same point size (Times New Roman, Linux Libertine), so as not to cause trouble with line height e.g. when writing a scientific paper.

@TCWhite: Thank you! However, the nudge feature deserves at least half of the credit. I would have been lost without it.
