Before the Haas Type Foundry released Helvetica in 1957, constructivist sans serif fonts were classified as Grotesk, a term that reflected the dismissive notion of typesetters in previous times. It was Art Deco and the Bauhaus movement, along with modernist architecture, fresh ideas and stricter shapes in interior design, a style influenced by industrial and technological developments, that made Grotesk fonts more popular over time.
This post describes how I have created matching Hebrew and Latin for my own font "Mike Hebrew".
I did not add this post to the "Creating a Merger of a Latin and a Non-Latin Font Style" because many of the replies did not deal with designing fonts. Furthermore don't want to be involved in criticizing other people's fonts, other people or to argue about history etc.
This design problem will be different for each kind of Hebrew font. If the Hebrew font is Frank Ruel then the solutions will be quite different to solutions that would be appropriate if the Hebrew font is Levenim. The is NO SINGLE SOLUTION.
What I write here only applies to matching the Hebrew and the Latin letters in my own "Mike Hebrew" font.
could any one of you help me out to really and once and for all understand the file nomenclature use for fonts?
For example this one
Is the T stands for "Text" or it stands for one of the many publisher or type foundry?
Thank you very much

This family has nine weights, and all the weight names and numbers are pretty standard. I've checked and double-checked and it doesn't seem like I've done anything wrong.
The data for the weights I've entered into FontLab are as follows:
