I have been having some fun trying the Sonnet Calligraphic 029 font within a multimedia authoring program named Opus Creator.
I have exported a stand-alone executable file for a PC and I have uploaded it to our family webspace. It is 2,075,106 bytes in size.
In addition, as it is a .exe file and I am making it available on the web, I emailed a copy from one email address to another, the receiving email address holding emails on the server and having a virus-checking system that checks a file before allowing one to download it to local storage and it reported "No virus threat detected".
The .exe file was exported from Opus Creator earlier this afternoon, by me, on the same computer that I regularly use. For provenance I mention that Opus Creator is made by Digital Workshop and http://www.digitalworkshop.com
is their webspace.
However, upon running the program, Windows prompts and says that it is from an Unknown Publisher. At present I do not know how, or if, without disproportionate cost, I can change that.
Anyway, all it does is draw some text on the screen, glyph by glyph, one at a time, using the Sonnet Calligraphic 029 font.
Some of the glyphs used were introduced in the Sonnet Calligraphic 029 font and some were introduced in earlier versions and are also in the Sonnet Calligraphic 029 font.
