If you're looking for free fonts, I recommend the Illinois Shakespeare Festival Folio Font (derived directly from the typeface of the Folio). The old url http://orathost.cfa.ilstu.edu:80/shakespeare/ISFfont.html isn't working for me, but maybe one of the zillion free font sites has it available. For unfree fonts: http://www.crazydiamond.co.uk/fonts/17c.html The latter (which is on my to buy list) is probably more suitable for your needs. Both these fonts are facsimiles, so have the grunged up look of books actually printed in C17. For smooth fonts that incorporate the characters you mention, there is a much wider range of options (on which I'd be glad to advise on the basis of my limited knowledge), but I can't think of any that are free. --And.
