Wow is this really the first one? Neat font looks like mine :)
Comment by At-At-Guy 2nd July 2010
wow... it was made in 2007

before i was here (this first font that made by meek), i was looking for the first fontstruction using the "everything" list. I kept clicking the high number of lists. How stupid =_="

As one of the 'dwarfs who stand on the shoulders of giants', it's nice to see the original shoulders :)

2018!

@Aeolien: 6-dot of width… (only as a base, all right!)
@ttg16777216: useful comment! ;-)

---

• 7 x-height is very legible (and looks like 'retro'*);

• + 5-dot numerics (disambiguation; 3-dot "1" );

• + wider (hacks):
· 7-dot ("MW" and "€")
· 8-dot (e.g. "@Ø")
· 9-dot ("mw" and "%");

• + narrower letters (esp. 1-dot "i" and 2-dot "l")
  and punctuations (of course);

• Final -extremely proportional- matrix: ~ 9 × 14
(= still low-res, * but not quite '8-bit' compatible).


More rigid clones are easily imaginable (if allowed),
for instance from the strict rule of 6-dot of width…
(although the user might get used to the compression.)

Comment by dpla 5th January 2018

well in answer to Anonymous-o I made a 98 character 5 BY 7 pixel font that stays STRICTLY at or under the Five By Seven size... and this is good I think there was a 5 by 7 font that predates this whole font making place here, and there might have even been one with lower case uppercase and symbols like mine, but If there was every any "official" one I do not know.

Good! I like the q with a tail! Make more fonts with q with tails, or not.
