I have a fascination with trying to create a usable text face using FontStruct.

This is my latest attempt.

The sample was created in Word 2007 with a font size of 12 and line-spacing set at 1.5.

The sample text is from a Cory Doctorow story named The Things that Make Me Weak and Strange Get Engineered Away.

It's very nice, aphoria. Very readable.

Still, allow me to make suggestions...
1. The angled letters gain extra weight at bends. FontStruct limits angles to just the two (or three, depends how you look at it). This font may work better with all squared-off letters. w like an inverted m, y like an open g, etc.
2. Actually, that was it. :)

nice execution which has resulted in a very legible font and distinctive too. great job :)

Thanks to both of you.

Thalamic, You are so right. Looking at my sample now, all I can see are little, seemingly bold w's. :)

I was afraid of that, but I was trying to keep it from looking like a pixely, monospaced font.

Thanks for the honesty though.

Ok, many changes.

- A, D, K, and R.
- v, w, x, y, and z.
- 0-9 are all taller now.
- $ is taller now.
