Modified clone of PureProg 12 5x8 Pixel mono Normal.

This fontstruction is made for programmers and coders. It's focused on beeing very small, monospaced and easy to read. It includes many international glyphs.
It isn't possible to draw some very exotic letters at this small size, so I abstracted or modified them to still identify them or associate them with the original letter.

The additional information behind 'Pure Prog' have got the following meanings:

12 -> use font-size 12 to see the at original size (although fontstruction says its 16)

5x8 -> capital letters are 5 pixel wide and 8 pixel tall

Pixel -> pixelbased (just consists out of sqaure bricks)

mono -> monospaced/fixed width (every glyph has got the same width)

Compressed -> capital accent characters are compressed to same height as standart ones


Very impressive set of characters. It might benefit from increased tracking...a Spacing setting of 2, perhaps.

An insane number of characters!

I agree with thalamic that it might look a little better with increased spacing.

@ thalamic and aphoria: Thanks for your comments and critisism!
It was a very hard decission, but I think I will leave the spacing of 1 pixel for the advantage of more information can be displayed on a signle textline.
Also, I don't want to make another split up so:
Feel free, to clone this fontstruction and adjust the spacing to your own favor.
(BTW, you ment horizontal spacing, didn't you? My english isn't quite good enough.)

Thanks for the advice, anyway! ...and please vote next time ;-)

Typos in the description: ...sqaure bricks (square bricks) and ...standart ones (standard ones).

The designer wanted to fix them.
