True. Thanks for your good work, although half of these problems were FS glitches, like the fact that Ö looks like Ō. Actually I did mean for Õ and Ō to look the same. Sort of a minimalist thing.

Well of course, it's pretty much impossible to express a tilde in a three pixel width ;)

Great cloning/enhancement, Umbreon126 !
(The original work is great too, demonics !)


“Well of course, it's pretty much impossible

> Unleash the programmer in you !-)

So, about the evoked tiny diacritics,
the maximum one can provide in 3-px wide chrs,
is 2^3-1 possibilities…
[At least it was my 'solution' in my 3x4 font.]

1 = 001 (acute accent ?)
2 = 010 (grave accent ?)
3 = 011 (circumflex accent ?)
4 = 100 (?)
5 = 101 (diaeresis ?)
6 = 110 (?)
7 = 111 (tilde ?)

{ Obviously, if you still use 2 lines in your accents,
it's 2^6-1 possibilities of accents, by convention.
But I'm afraid 64 accents is too much,
and tough to be remembered b.t.w. ! LOL }


You have at least 7 different accents, by convention, now. In a 3x4 grid, the letters must be very small (their x-height), whereas in your quite taller font, it won't make as much difficulties, IMO.

• Your macron alike accent in 3x2 :
000
111

• A tilde mark in 3x2 :
110
101
(or its mirror)

Hmm... clever. But I think I'll stick with what demonics did. Thanks for the suggestions though :)

You're right, accents are a lot less unambiguous as 3x2 than as 3x1 (if that's the question).
Comment by dpla 12th May 2013
PS.
If you compare 3x2 accents, I wonder how one could draw a macron differently in 2-px height… (All right, one can see anything / everything in a 3-px wide line… any accent…)

Well, with such nice small fonts on FS, we don't need to bother about the oil crisis anymore… (OK : 'ink crisis' too ;-P)

fixed the bold tag, sorry…
