Workplace Sans True Type font Version 0.5

September 21, 2008 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

Alex Taylor has updated his Workplace Sans TrueType font to Version 0.5:

Please read the note below before installing.

Workplace Sans is a light condensed sans-serif TrueType font with Unicode encoding.

This font has been carefully designed to resemble, as much as possible, the OS/2 bitmap font "WarpSans". This resemblance is at its best when displayed on-screen at 9 point/120 dpi, or 11 point/96 dpi.

NOTE: With version 0.5, I have embarked on a fairly extensive re-tooling of Workplace Sans. Most of the glyphs are a lot cleaner and more regular in appearance now (although still not perfect).

I decided to recreate the font file from scratch, and add each glyph as I redesigned it. Version 0.5 represents the first milestone in this effort.

Version 0.5 of Workplace Sans does NOT support all of the characters that were included in the previous versions. At present, only the Latin-1 character set (basically, OS/2 codepages 850 and 819) are supported."
