GNU Unifont is a Unicode font family produced by Roman Czyborra and can be distributed under the GNU General Public License. The latest version of GNU Unifont covers 63,449 glyphs for large number of written languages.
Here is what I did to download and install it on my Windows 7 systems:
1. Go to http://unifoundry.com/unifont.html.
2. Click the link in this statement: "The Standard Unifont TTF Download: unifont-8.0.01.ttf (12 Mbytes)"

5. Click the "Install" button. Windows will install the GNU Unifont font family and make it available as "Unifont" to Windows applications like MS Word.
