HEX is a bitmap font format associated with the GNU Unifont project. It is a plain text-based format, and uses hex encoding. It is very limited, and used mainly as an intermediate format.

GNU Unifont is a project to create and maintain a free bitmap font containing all of the defined characters in Unicode's Basic Multilingual Plane. Many non-BMP characters are also covered in some way, though they seem to be second-class citizens.
