What fonts support the widest range of characters? (Like Helvetica Neue LT W1G)

Need to work on an a website present in 25+ countries, and I'm looking for something I can use as a webfont.

Update: To make things even worse, it needs to have subpixel hinting so that it doesn't look like crap on Windows.

You are almost certainaly not looking for the widest range of characters (just take a brief tour of Unicode). Also: Do these 25+ countries include some with non-Latin alphabets? If yes, why do you think, that you need to use the same font for every language? If no, there are several fonts that will suffice. –  Wrzlprmft Jan 22 at 9:52
    
Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. are not required to be the same font. Cyrillic on the other hand would be nice. –  zeppelin Jan 22 at 11:06

You need to search for OpenType faces that support Cyrillic. –  DA01 Jan 22 at 15:41

If you are looking for commercial fonts, the URW Global fonts are hard to beat, as they have Western, Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic and CJK plus assorted other asian glyphs.
