3Strands.ttf VERSION 1.01 READ ME 27 April 2002 Daniel U. Thibault [email protected] This is a freeware alien font. It looks somewhat like if someone had dipped three worms in ink and had them race each other on the paper. It looks best printed (300+ dpi) or at large screen sizes (24+ pt). The basic concept is thus: using this font, you generate lines of "text" that look like a continuous braid of three strands that sometimes split or merge, turn around, stop and start, and weave in front of or behind each other. This simple principle turns out to be very rich in possibilities --I could not squeeze all the possible glyphs in the printable character set. For proper results, each "word" (string of characters terminated by a blank on either side) should be enclosed in any of the following pairs of characters: Opening characters: ( < [="" {="" ="" ="" �="" ansi="" 40="" 60="" 91="" 123="" 147="" 145="" 171="" closing="" characters:="" )=""> ] } � ANSI 41 62 93 125 148 146 187 There is no need for the closing character to match the opening character. (145-146 are the curly apostrophes; 147-148 are the curly quotes; 171-187 are the guillemets) Other pairs that were considered are: Opening characters: " ' 9 ! ? / ANSI 34 39 139 33 63 47 Closing characters: : � � \ ANSI 132 130 155 161 191 92 They weren't used since we did not need more than seven. (130 is the lowered curly apostrophe; 132 is the lowered curly quote; 139-155 are the angle quotation marks; 161 is the Spanish closing exclamation mark; 191 is the Spanish closing question mark) The two pictures (3Strands1.gif and 3Strands2.gif) show the resulting font. I made this font with a combination of Corel Draw, Softy 1.07b, Font Creator Program 3 and some home-made software tools. CHARACTER MAP NOTES I tried to fulfill the TrueType minimum recommended character set, whilst also remaining within the 0..255 ANSI character code range. The following non-standard mappings were made to fill ANSI gaps: Unicode ANSI Character 321 129 L stroke 322 141 l stroke 286 143 G breve 287 144 g breve 304 157 I dot 305 164 dotless i 350 173 S cedilla / soft hyphen 713 175 macron The following glyph pairs have identical appearances; the "copies" were made so Macintosh Roman mappings (which lie in the 0..255 range) give access to as many of the otherwise Windows/Unicode-only glyphs: Unicode Windows Mac Character 8800 - 173 not equal to 350 173 - S cedilla / soft hyphen 8734 - 176 infinity 304 157 - I dot 8804 - 178 less than or equal to 287 144 - g breve 8805 - 179 greater than or equal to 286 143 - G breve 8706 - 182 partial differential 190 190 - vulgar fraction three quarters 8721 - 183 summation 188 188 - vulgar fraction one quarter 8719 - 184 product 189 189 - vulgar fraction one half 960 - 185 pi 179 179 - superscript three 8747 - 186 integral 178 178 - superscript two 8486 - 189 Ohm 185 185 - superscript one 8730 - 195 radical 215 215 - multiplication 8776 - 197 approximately equal to 254 254 - lower case thorn 8710 - 198 increment 222 222 - upper case thorn 9674 - 215 lozenge 253 253 - lower case y acute 8260/8725 - 218 fraction 221 221 - upper case y acute 61441/64257 - 222 fi ligature 240 240 - lower case eth 61442/64258 - 223 fl ligature 208 208 - upper case eth 728 - 249 breve 166 166 - broken bar 729 - 250 dot accent 382 158 - lower case z caron 730 - 251 ring accent 381 142 - upper case z caron 733 - 253 hungarian umlaut 353 154 - lower case s caron 731 - 254 ogonek 352 138 - upper case s caron 711 - 255 caron (hacek) 322 141 - lower case l stroke VERSION HISTORY 1.01 Minor adjustments; 27 April 2002 1.00 Original release; 26 April 2002 Feedback is welcome!
