A pixel version of Tahoma. Every letter is exactly the same as the Tahoma equivalent in 8pt.


What is the point of this font? Sure, it's obviously been meticulously copied, but really, what can this do. It's not original, Tahoma comes with Windows for free, and can even be freely downloaded from Ubuntu repositories (although Ascender sells it too, derp). Not trying to be mean, but please hide this.

While this certainly isn't pushing the bounds of creativity, the 1,460 characters shows a high level of dedication. :)

The creator of this appears to be a young fontstructor. Copying a font is a great way to learn the ins and outs of creating your own. Discovering what works, what doesn't, etc.

Keep working...

@Umbreon126 // Wait…can't ETHproductions do whatever they want? I'm guessing that this wasn't meant to be used in place of Tahoma, and that it was just an exercise in patience and technique. What's more, I am extremely curious as to why it would matter to you if they hid it or not. It's not harming anyone…

Thank you for your encouragement, aphoria, demonics, and elmoyenique. I just started fontstructing less than a month ago. I’m really interested in pixel fonts, and copying is good practice for beginners at almost anything, so I decided to try it here. Hopefully I’ll be able to create my own pixel fonts soon.

Can you make a font called "fsTrebuchet10pt"?

Any bold?

I love this! It has such a different feel from full-pixel Tahoma.
I feel good looking at this font :)
