Bill sent me a PM yesterday, and unless the kerning is an issue that cannot be handled by the current group members, I agreed that it was silly for me to be adding myself as an unnecessary chef in this effort.
You know best how you want the baseline to go with the uc and l/c.
Yep, you have kerning problems, but Bill, you can run auto-kerning in FontLab, and manually adjust anything in a long string of text that looks wrong.
I have several pangrams that are excellent for testing kerned pair, say the word if you want them.
Gary I would greatly appreciate the programs. Manually working kerning pairs relies too much on memory and mine seems to be getting more unreliable by the minute.
Due to some real life work "the kind that pays the bills" I won't have time to do much until late this afternoon, but the lowercase j looks good now.
Gary if you could post those panagrams they might be helpful for kicking the tires so to speak
Could everyone try the fonts within the attached zip file and provide feedback, please?
Only install either the .ttf or the .otf, not both.

The 'g' look is directly from Gare's posted bitmaps of the original here http://www.talkgraphics.com/showthre...840#post438840 We could do an alternate for it.
We can add an alternate L. Please do not submit a .xar file however, people using different relative sizes cause issues when the glyph is imported into FontLab and must be manipulated to fit in with the existing glyphs. Easier to edit an existing glyph at this point while inside FontLab.
Everyone please indicate which shape you would like, one of Larry's two choices, or Frances'.
Round Head as we have been working on it is a Head Line font. Would we like to delve deeper into font creation and have Round Head become a font family? In this case a family with two or three member fonts. Gary has done some work on a shortened Capitol letter version. I am experimenting with creating a version with typical baseline for upper case and lower case and a font weight suitable for text content rather than a headline. No new glyphs will be needed, Gary and I can work with the glyphs everyone has already provided.
What do the members of the Typography and Fonts group think about the idea?
