To be as as compact as possible horizontally and legible at small sizes... Based closely off of the work of Thomas Whetnall at http://eight2empire.blogspot.com/2012/02/exploring-type.html , this tiny proportional-width pixel font is meant to be used in games where space is at a premium. Its widest glyphs are 5 pixels across (not including spacing between characters), and at most 8 pixels tall. I have made a few modifications from the original, on the characters 'H', 'I', 'K', 'l', 'u', 'w', '0', '@', and possibly changing the vertical positions of some punctuation. I added in some Latin-1 glyphs that show up a lot, like the copyright symbol and the ellipsis. This font strongly emphasizes the difference between glyphs rather than using traditional letter-forms, so while it may look odd at first, the legibility could grow on you.

This font is based on the HD44780U Character LCD-display, and it's a clone of the 5x8 LCD HD44780U A02 font, wich again is a clone of my LCD Dot Matrix font.
I've added some more characters to the font, some cloned from the Lucid font, while others where taken from the datasheet for the Hitachi HD44780U (LCD-II).
I've made a new font wich contains many symbols to be used together with this font. It'll be released later.
The font contains some alternative glyphs for the "A", "S", "3", "4", "5", "7" and "9" characters in the Devanagari character space.
The upper- and lowercase letters "Ø", and "ø", has been cloned from the Lucid font. (The original "Ø", and "ø" could be found in the Devanagari character space).This is a clone of 5x8 LCD HD44780U A02
