Re: Variable fonts

Hi Erwin Thank you for your reply. I have made a post to the OpenType list - in fact I sent it twice because I thought that it had not worked. Later I found both versions in a spam folder. Oops. Anyway, did you get a copy from the OpenType list or has it gone to your spam folder or maybe just gone? ...

Variable fonts

A few days ago I learned of the existence of variable fonts. There was a post in the OpenType mailing list. I have redacted the names of his two colleagues that he names as they were published in a closed mailing list. In my talk at ATypI (video herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pef_yujD4eM&t=1239...

Re: National Health Service (UK) font guidelines

Ok ... so I got the name wrong! I almost never use 'Arial' except at work where it is mandated (and even then I sometimes sustitute Calibri and nobody notices). :roll: Oh, you putting Ariel rather than Arial serendipitously had the effect of me finding some very interesting things that I did not kn...
