    Just tried the font Bill posted. Should we be concerned about the kerning relative to the original layout (bitmaps Gare posted)?
    It needs about 50-60 ems between letters to match.

    Hi Fred—

    Um, this entire typeface is in the works, kerning, everything.

    Bull, contact me if you think you have the free time to pull the cap heights down to the character heights.

    In order for punctuation to work, all the caps need to be aligned and flush with the character height.

    I've devoted three hours this morning, and I'm up to the extended characters now.

    THEN comes metrics, THEN kerning.

    Thanks everyone! I think we have all the releases now. Christine, thanks, that was a good catch on Michelle's release having the wrong font name.

    Gary if the cap heights are pulled down to the character height the font will no long look the same as in the original image and be less appealing in my opinion.

    In post #137 of this thread I posted an image showing where I had made mistakes of vertical placement for lower case and punctuation. I would prefer to correct those things and increase the character's cell width according to Mike's post.

    I will go along with what everyone would prefer.

    OK, a step at a time; I'm learning as we go.

    I agree with Bill on not changing the cap height to retain the 'look'.

    I agree with Bill and Fred. I have a question though, why are there two different Capital E's? One is round and one is square. Is this an option to pick which one?

    The original images has two different Es Larry. The E with angles is the primary and the rounded is an Alternate.

    Gary do you know how to rename the cell's associated with a glyph? Every time I try it deletes the glyph.

    While I too would like to retain the cap height and the original look, I feel it's important the the punctuation is correctly aligned. So if the original height can be kept and the punctuation correctly aligned that would be great, but if we have to choose between correctly aligned punctuation and the original cap height then I think the punctuation alignment gets my vote.
