Proptopaz is a proportional version of the original Topaz
font, ie. the one that was built into Kickstart 1.2/1.3. It
is particularly suited for games and other software running
on a lores screen.

The simple manner in which Amiga fonts handle kerning means
you can never have perfect results with every combination of
characters. I spent quite a long time fiddling with spacing
and kerning for every single character. I ultimately settled
on a compromise that puts emphasis on readability over com-
pactness.

The glyphs are the same as in the original font. Only size 8
is provided for now.


History:

1.1 (May 20, 2022)

- Reduced the width of characters having the ~ accent so as
  to be the same as that of the corresponding characters
  without it.

1.0 (April 7, 2021)

- Initial release.
