I'd like to draw your attention to two superb type families:

Gentium, covering most Latin-script usage and Greek and Cyrillic,  
designed by Victor Gaultney,
<http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/ 
page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=Gentium>;

and

Everson Mono, covering the non-Han parts of the Basic Multilingual  
Plane of the Universal Character Set, designed by Michael Everson,
<http://www.evertype.com/emono/>.
