Hebrew font help

I've already inquired here about the identity of this Hebrew font:


I've seen it before in this form:

Does anyone know how I can create a fully-working Unicode Hebrew font (complete with proper nikkud alignment) from this?

Have a look at

Creating a font is a major undertaking so my question would be WHY?
Why are you attached to this particular font? Have you created fonts for English or some other Latin language?
People spend years creating a font.
There are lots of free fonts for Hebrew.

I don't know. I just like the way it looks.

Isn't that font, Vilna? There is an open-source Unicode font that emulates Vilna that you can learn from -- Mekorot-Vilna. The Hebrew range in the Linux Libertine font also is a Vilna style font.

You'll find both of them in the Open Siddur open source and Unicode Hebrew font pack.

Note there are some issues with diacritic placement with this font which needs fixing.
