New logo design - are we using the right font?

#epic_facepalm And now we are confusing each other, too. @Perez’s post looked posted, either in the wrong place, or just to post something. Also, there was an anime named “Read or Die”. Main character: Yomiko ‘The Paper’ Readman from the British...

I do not know either how to install fonts onto a Linux system, since my only computer with a GUI runs MS Windows. I think, however, that there is a font installer application available, maybe inside the font viewer, as shown below:

I saw on Luc Devroye’s site that it was indeed Big Red Lever Time for the typOasis. He has taken over hosting at least some of Cybapee’s and MKlein’s fonts.

Is the glyph in the correct place? I think, think, Acrobat uses the glyph’s name but Word uses its Unicode place.

Well, I certainly can’t, but have you tried asking in the “Type ID” forum? That’s the specialist hang-out, anyway.

Performance, load time and system fonts
Commented on Thursday, 6 July 2017 - 12:22pm

I haven’t really thought about this in a long time, but IIRC, system fonts are the first choice for browser defaults; hence the old selections of Times New Roman, Arial and Courier New on Windows systems and Times, Helvetica and Courier on Apple...
