Re: Munson

I have been looking at the Roman and the Italic. I remember Monotype Modern Roman from metal type. Munson Roman has the upward hook lower right on both a lowercase a and on an uppercase R and that looks good.

I do not understand what is happening at the moment and so maybe this is an issue of how the lines need to be spaced when using the new format to typeset a chess diagram ...
