This font is not readable!
Comment by PiotrGrochowski 28th February 2015
What do you mean?
Comment by Eʟᴇᴋᴛʀᴏɴ 28th February 2015
Whatever you type on this font, it will be unreadable.
Comment by PiotrGrochowski 28th February 2015
Sorry, I don’t understand you.
This font contains glyphs for the masonic cipher (several variants). Each glyph is a simple square or triangular geometric figure. It may contain something inside (dots, cross, ring).

@Piotr:
as this font is a code font you [i]expect[/i] it to be used for information that should not be available to the broad public but only to those who (need to)KNOW it.
If you can't decipher it, if the information it holds when used as a text font is not immediately available and would require effort and knowledge to be discovered and understood, then the code has worked in the way it should ;)

We can go so far as to say that a spoken and written language other than (as an example here:)English, makes no sense to people outside the cultures where such non-English language is commonly used, and [i]could[/i] be interpreted as code; it certainly would be unintelligible to most of us, and as you say "not readable": matau koe aha te tikanga i ahau? And even more so when non-English writing systems are used: तुम समझते हो कि मेरा मतलब क्या है?

Of course some people know how to enjoy the decorative quality of the various shapes and their combinations without wishing nor needing to search for 'meaning' or 'words' written with this font: beauty is valid in its own right.

And do not forget that some fonts [i]are intended[/i] to be decorative or illustrative rather than containing "letters" to make readable/decipherable words and sentences: http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/786004 and also http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1062904.

ugh damn html, nevermind
Comment by minidonut 1st March 2015
Aeolien explained it very well. Glyphs of this font may denote any character someone wishes to encipher in any language.

@Aeolien:
Also you have a cool castle font (http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/ch_teau_d_air).

@minidonut:
Thank you. :-) (I didn’t use HTML in the nickname, it is a Unicode trick.)
