    Does Gentium look ok for Vietnamese?
    http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=Gentium

    Gentium supports
    1. Latin-based languages with all the accented glyphs
    2. Greek
    3. Cyrillic (with all the accented glyphs)

    Gentium is distributed with the Open Font License.
