Add icelandic to the "languages and writing systems" list

I'd like to ask you to add Icelandic to the "languages and writing systems" list in the left-hand filter menu.

 

There are a couple of characters unique to our language, þ and ð, the æ character that is uncommon in other languages (afaik) and the accented characters áéíóúýö. Plus capitals and punctuation characters we share with German, I think.

Filtering for fonts that have them would save designers working with icelandic a lot of time. As it stands, I have to put all these characters into the test text box and manually search for that, wich isn't the greatest font picking experience. 

 

Looking forward from hearing from you!

 

Sv.

I don't know which apps you're using but on the web we use unicode or HTML entities for special characters.

For example: Æ æ þ Ƌ

For what it's worth, eth, thorn and ae are in the same part of Unicode as the other accented characters commonly used in Europe. So I'd expect to find them in any complete text font (but not, for example, a caps only display font).

Most but not all, which is why I'm asking for the filter option.
