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.

    Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. are not required to be the same font. Cyrillic on the other hand would be nice.

    You need to search for OpenType faces that support Cyrillic.

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.


Noto Sans has also (prerelease) support for many non-latin scripts
