Odd request

Post by vanisaac » Wed Nov 09, 2011 1:56 am

I am looking for a font with embedded bitmaps in order to investigate the EBDT, EBLC, and EBSC truetype tables. It doesn't matter what the coverage is, but the font needs to have both regular TrueType outlines and corresponding embedded bitmaps (eg for small display sizes).

Thanks for any help.

TypoPhile is a forum well worth joining for expert help.

Excellent. Thanks for the pointer, Bikkhu. I think those will do very well for what I'm investigating. Much thanks.
