The BetterFonts mod adds TrueType/OpenType font support for Minecraft. This mod will use the fonts installed on your system for drawing text instead of the builtin bitmap fonts that come with Minecraft. Languages such as Arabic and Hindi look much better with this mod since both require complex layout that the bitmap fonts simply can't provide. All in-game text will change to use the new fonts including GUIs, the F3 debug screen, chat, and even signs. This mod should have little or no impact on performance.
Unicode Text in Chat:
Starting with 1.3.2, both the regular Minecraft server and CraftBukkit allow using full Unicode text in chat. Unfortunately, the Minecraft client comes with an older version of the LWJGL library which doesn't handle keyboard layouts properly. You will have to to manually update LWJGL to the latest version, if you need Unicode support in chat.
FOR PEOPLE THAT WANT THE 1.5.2 VERSION:
EDIT: A fix for Betterfonts 1.5.2 conflicting with Optifine is in progress. Please wait until I can release the bug fix.
CREDIT FOR UPDATING BETTERFONTS TO 1.5.1: wonbear
The default font of this mod has been changed to SansSerif by wonbear (the person who updated the mod). Go ahead to his blog ( http://wonbear.egloos.com/5736415 ) and scroll down to the 'Configuration' section.
Tell me if the links becomes broken! I'll post a new one if it does.
If you like this mod, mind giving this post a +1 at the bottom of this post? Thanks for your support!
Pictures (From The Original Thread):
You can have a config file to change the default font and text size this mod uses. If your game is installed in a ".minecraft" directory, then the config file will be ".minecraft/config/BetterFonts.cfg" (the same place ModLoader *and forge?* keeps its config files). Please note that the "config" directory does not go inside minecraft.jar but directly into the game folder. You can download the config file. Open spoiler below to have a better tutorial on changing the fonts, by wonbear.
