Toronto Typophiles meet
Posted 18 Apr 2009 - 1:58pm

I notice that there are many typophiles in Toronto. I will be making a short trip to Toronto after I graduate at in mid-May; I don't know if you ever get together out there, but I would welcome the opportunity to meet while I'm there. I will be there...

Posted 9 Feb 2009 - 3:31am

(Apologies for the length. For the short but incomplete version, just follow the bolds.)

ClearType, in XP and Vista
Posted 12 Apr 2007 - 2:23pm

I've been bothered lately by the limited control that I'm able to exert on font display in XP with the ClearType Power Toy. It got me thinking about how there used to be a variety of controls for CoolType in Adobe Reader, back in version 5 or 6. So I...

Winnipeg typophiles?

I am curious to know if there are any Winnipeg typophiles on these forums. Or am I the only one? If you don't know what or where Winnipeg is, then you're definitely not one!

A friend of mine wants to publish a manual for his CMS software package that is being written in DocBook XML. I did a search here but nothing turned up.

Posted 8 Nov 2004 - 10:37pm

Hello. This is my first stab at font building. It is not an original design, but my attempt at recreating the fonts found in the Oeuvres de Descartes series published by J. Vrin in the 1970s. It was pointed out to me by someone named...
