According to Co.Design, Wikipedia is 100 per cent open source and free for the world to use, but there is no free and open typeface that can render in all of the world’s languages.

Wiki media’s Director of User Experience Jared Zimmerman said that the changes might seem subtle — some readers might not even know there’s a change. However, he added, that this might starts to highlight some bigger issues for the company.
