So, thank you Mike, this is a spin-off. Something I've been searching for for some time.
In the newsgroup comp.fonts, Josef W. Segur <firstname.lastname@example.org> posted (in reply to a post from Mike Thompson):
To save trouble:.......................A simple approach would be to import the glyphs from a Public Domain font, for example Tuffy by Thatcher Ulrich, available at <URL:
The font I now put forward for teachers, is TuffyMH3. M=modified extensively and characters added. H=auto-hinted using TypeTool v.1 (obtained from a cover-disc on a UK 2004 magazine).
I've taken all the care that I can, to fashion this font, and I believe it will be useful for teachers in UK, North America, Western Europe and elsewhere. Perhaps more could have been made of composites?
I hope it is of good enough quality for typesetting and publications. I can only test with Windows ME, Word 2000, and a few other applications. It has given no trouble.
This font remains in the Public Domain. Only the filename has been changed and a comment has been placed in Format -> Naming -> Advanced to indicate the changes.
I would appreciate your comments.
