Basic Latin and More Latin. I think I did really well on this one. You?

This is great. The cross stroke on the t looks too high though. Maybe the whole top of the t could be lowered a little bit.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 8th June 2011
Thanks! I've lowered the top of the t. Any more suggestions?
Comment by BanjoZebra 8th June 2011
Thicken up the stem of your T. Otherwise, nice fat octagonal fontstruction – and bonus points for extending the character set. :)

Thanks, Willy! ;-)

A few things to consider: the middle horizontal stroke of E,F is disproportionately large, as a consequence your Æ looks a bit queer; the inverted exclamation mark and question mark (¡¿) go down to the descenders; the section sign (§) also stretches to the descender territory; so does the pilcrow sign (¶); the single and double angle quotation marks (‹› «») are huge, do not confuse them with less-than and greater-than signs (); the eszett (ß) has no descender in Roman fonts as opposed to cursive forms. Your glyph looks more like the Greek small beta (β); the small thorn (þ) has ascender and descender too. The colon and semicolon (:;) usually occupy the whole x-height, yours moved three bricks upward. If you want to learn more about these issues, there are excellent books to thumb through (e.g. Designing Type by Karen Cheng; The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst).

@Frodo: Whew, lotsa stuff. I don't recall §, ¶, and þ having descenders. Thanks, though. :)
Comment by BanjoZebra 10th June 2011
There is no need to recall, just take a closer look at your own comment.
Comment by Frodo7 11th June 2011
Ohhh. Haha. I misunderstood. I'm about to change 'em.
Comment by BanjoZebra 11th June 2011
Now I haven't studied Spanish or Portuguese, but about the ¡ and ¿ I bellieve that the ascending versions are a "legal" alternative. And prefered in all caps environments. But I don't know if there is a seperate unicode point for those.

Well, the most common way to do it is the one you suggest Frodo7.

@CMunk: I think, you referred to an OpenType feature called "case sensitive punctuation". This topic has been extensively discussed on Typophile.com and elsewhere.
