Here are some compact bitmap fonts, suitable for use with Workbench and other
software. I have designed them over a long period (since the late 1980s) using
the FED and Typeface font editors. I use Icon/8 as Workbench icon font, and
Thin/9 as system default font.

Please notify me if you find any errors or inconsistencies. Note that the
character with hex code $A0 (" ", non-breaking space, obtained by typing alt-
space on the keyboard) is represented in these fonts by a glyph which looks
similar to a dollar sign. Character $A0 in the ROM topaz font is blank. This is
an artefact of the way FED shows character $A0. You can edit the fonts to make
character $A0 blank if you wish.


The fonts are:

Excel - 8x8 and 10x9 pixels
-----
A replacement for the ROM Topaz font. You can use FF (from the Workbench 1.3
disk) to replace the ROM font with this one. Add a line like this to your
startup-sequence to replace the 8- and 9-pixel ROM fonts:
C:FF >NIL: -n Excel.font        ;Replace ROM topaz font with custom one

ExcelCondensed - 7x8 pixels
--------------
A thinner version of Excel/8 (7 pixels wide as opposed to 8). This looks better
on screens which have a near-1:1 aspect ratio (e.g. NTSC:High Res Laced), and
allows more text to fit on the screen.


pExcel - 8 and 9 pixels
------

pExcelCondensed - 8 pixels
---------------
These are proportional versions of Excel and ExcelCondensed; they look nicer in
applications that allow proportional fonts to be used.



Thin - 6x7, 6x8 and 6x9 pixels
----
A small fixed-width font

ThinCondensed - 5x7 and 5x8 pixels
-------------
A condensed version of Thin.



Icon - 7 and 8 pixels
----

IconCondensed - 7 and 8 pixels
-------------
Proportional versions of Thin and ThinCondensed. MUI users may like to use
IconCondensed/7 as their MUI tiny font.



To Do
=====
Excel/11
(p)ExcelCondensed/9
ThinCondensed/9 (5x9 pixels)
