An overview of the special features of the font is available on a separate page. Kliment Std supports nearly all the same the Unicode blocks as RomanCyrillic Std, so you may have a look at the documentation for that font, too.

Version 2.2 of the font has also been the subject of a paper by the author which is available in pdf form.

Special note: ALL of the special glyphs in Kliment Std which differentiate this font from the basic glyphs in RomanCyrillic Std are also available as OpenType features in RomanCyrillic Std; thus, if you application supports OpenType features, RomanCyrillic Std may be the only font you need. Kliment Std is a font for those occasions where you cannot use OpenType features, where it is more convenient to have the historic glyphs in direct access, for web use etc.
