@ Igor @ HrantIgor the word space uni 1361 is two dots to separate a words . By white space I mean negative space within the letter . A better “ Hiwa” is insured by setting rules how to write each letter . Rule number one is when a letter form is written one has to start from left to the right . For example if you write upper case Latin “H” you have to start from left vertical stroke and then the horizontal bar and thenFinish it by adding the right horizontal stroke on the right (right is as you see the screen). Only 3 strokes .as you can see on the image after the first stroke it is easier to see where to put the next stroke in proportion . Another rule is no letter form shouldn’t have continuous lines for example if you write the letter “O” it has to have two half circles joined .Hrant BTW “Hiwa”sometimes spelled “ Hewa” means space or usable vacuum You can see the use of Hiwa better on Ethiopian crosses like this painting of mine .Or google Ethiopian old crosses .How to translate all this in typography design is my life long passion.
