On Thu, 1 Jul 2010 Nikola Lečić submitted a new package


to CTAN.

Summary description: Old Standard: A Unicode Font for Classical and Medieval Studies
License type: ofl

Author of the font is Alexey Kryukov.

Announcement text: 
Old Standard is supposed to reproduce the actual printing
style of the
early 20th century, reviving a specific type of Modern
style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various
editions of
the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost completely

It supports typesetting of Old and Middle English, Old
Cyrillic (with historical characters, extensions for Old
Slavonic and
localised forms), Gothic transliterations, critical editions of
Classical Greek and Latin, and many more.

Old Standard works with TeX engines that directly support
features, such as XeTeX and LuaTeX.

License: OFL, GFDL (manual)
