Note that there might be differences depending on the intended use of the typeface.
ƒ When used as a florin, always italic. When used as a hooked f, follow the lowercase letters.
So, this is a case when two differe…
What size is a good periodcentered compared to the lowercase letter weight or the period? I had read from some Catalan readers that it shouldn't be the same size in certain cases but I can't find the reference again.
Thank you for your posts so far, I've never used VTT before and am about to for the first time, previously I had used ttfautohint with the control files, a tedious process that involved opening FontForge, enabling grid fit to read each…
Yep, before controls files were introduced, making minor transformations to the glyph outlines was the way to get the best results from ttfa
How does that work when in one size a stroke is too thick, and too thin in another size?
I bought Speedpunk and have started to use it out but I still don't understand when it's useful, I've been having trouble with round italic glyphs, and for that reason I thought maybe it could show me where my issues might be.
But apart from seeing…

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I plan to analyse the Wikipedia dumps, I'll post results when I get them.
Interesting program, via Google translate I understand the app comes with frequency lists of 'syllables'? I'm trying …
Ok it's a pretty simple task. Some quick research after finding out what to look up returned the following:
I tried to maintain the stem-interval and manipulated especially the lengths of the serifs to get an equilibrium of white space. This way for instance the n is measurably centered on its width; this preserves the equal distances between all stems. I…
