Tahoma Knock Off

Post by Tom » Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:51 pm

I have a loan document that was created in November 1991 by an attorney using an early Apple computer, probably a Mac SE. The computer is long gone and my attorney passed away in 2006. I think he was using word perfect and some sort of business form software created for early PC's. The type face in question is identical to Tahoma but Tahoma was not introduced until 1994. I'm told that Tahoma is a knock off of several other fonts that were in use decades ago and may have actually been designed by Susan Kare or Adrian Fruitiger. Can anyone confirm my suspicions or has anyone used the early business / legal form software I am referring too? Your help is appreciated. Sincerely, Tom
