# Calligraphy font with latin-extende-a alphabet

I'm trying to write some name cards for table placements using a calligraphy font, but I needed latin-extended-a alphabet which has characters like ā, ņ, etc.

Everything suitable for the style I want in http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/calligraphicalfonts.html hasn't included latin-extended-a character set.

Is there an easy or reasonable way to work out which fonts might work?

I'm also using xelatex, so TTF/OTF system fonts are worth checking as well.

The OpenType version of TeX Gyre Chorus has almost complete coverage of Latin Extended-A. Only four characters are missing: U+138 (Latin Small Letter Kra), U+0149 (Latin Small Letter N preceded by apostrophe, deprecated as of Unicode 5.2), U+0166 (Latin Capital Letter T with stroke), and U+0167 (Latin Small Letter T with stroke).

\RequirePackage{luatex85}% only if compiling with lualatex
\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{array,fontspec}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Chorus}

• Warning to the reader unfamiliar with fonts in xetex: In some cases (e.g. here - gist.github.com/anonymous/730232cc040d1f3bf10094749134ba6c ) the included packages might break utf-8 tex file encoding. When using macros like \={a} instead of ā, this can cause problems. So: don't mix xelatex with fontenc package and macro accent input - instead use either latex+fontenc+accent maros, OR xelatex+fontspec+accented literals. Thanks to @bluebirch for help with this... – Blake Sep 8 '17 at 11:22
