The Tiro fonts are super, and I hadn't paid attention to them before.
Thanks!  They are licensed under the Open Font License
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIL_Open_Font_License>, so anyone can
download, distribute and use them for any purpose.

The Microsoft fonts, including Arial Unicode, have always been covered by a
completely restrictive commercial license.  The font files (TTF, OTF) may
not be downloaded or distributed.  The fonts are licensed as integral parts
of the Windows OS and may be used only in that environment only by people
who have paid for a Windows license.  Most people, including major
publishers, think that Arial Unicode is a free font.  It's not.   Yes, a
PDF with some characters embedded in it can be shared, but not the font
