@minidonut: With such a small grid, one has to expect some ambiguity.
Comment by jimhv 16th October 2012
Good job.
BTW, about 'ambiguity'… tons of possibilities (as shown in the calculation below) allow a 3x4 font to be safe from any duplicate, even with both cases in basic Greek, believe me. (Besides, in 3x4, my lowercase were 3x3 mainly, i.e. baseline compliant ; the lowercase letters were smaller, of course, which requires a short learning curve.) So, your Greek characters are using several doubles from the Latin ? it's only a (big) problem in a reading/transmission per character, not always in a per-word mode. I mean, if you write/send "A" with this font, your recipient cannot always decipher the message because of the Greek duplicate (you need more info/context, else you get 50 % of risk of error). I enjoyed the effort in Greek, though personally, I'd prefer diacritics, even the complete CP1252 set.

Interesting grid in mind.

• Font name :
Grid size (max poss. glyphs)

• xe Simpole Mono :
3x4 px (2^12 = 4'096)

• Prog :
3x5 px (2^15 = 32'768)

• djx Pixely :
3x6 px (2^18 = 262'144

Well, the Greek uppercase alpha is identical to Latin A and Cyrillic A, and many other possible glyphs may not resemble a glyph in Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, or etc, so the ambiguity is pretty much inevitable. Then there's the question of if the A in question written is mixed text or not, which if it is a long text, then the reader should be able to discern if it's Greek or English (unless they know not a word of the other).

It's right about the context/rules.

As far as I can remember, when I was drawing 3x4 Greek chrs, I slightly altered their form, so that they could not be mixed with their Latin substitutes anymore… which may not please Greek people BTW, of course…
