The GNU Unifont <URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Unifont>
<URL:http://unifoundry.com/unifont.html> covers an impressive range of
the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane.

Unifont is originally a bitmap font, but was recently made available
in TrueType format 

Both are available in Debian 'lenny'; the 'unifont' and 'ttf-unifont'
packages, respectively.
