Almost Swiss Fonts v. 1.1 (15/7/2019, Alex Taylor) Readme/What's new
Almost Swiss OS/2 Bitmap Font Version 1.1 Almost Swiss is an OS/2 sans-serif bitmap font designed to be suitable for program screen text at higher resolutions. It is particularly well-suited for use in lists, tables, and container controls. Almost Swiss was inspired by the 8-point size of the system font "Helv" (or "Swiss"), which in turn is a loose rasterized adaptation of Helvetica. The problem with Helv is that point sizes above 10 (or above 8 at 120 dpi) use very heavy strokes, which results in a quite different visual style. Consequently, Almost Swiss was created to fulfill a desire for larger sizes in the lighter Helv/Swiss style. The above notwithstanding, version 1.1 introduces an extra weight, "Almost Swiss Medium", at the 11 and 12 point sizes. This is slightly darker than the standard (light) weight, and is provided mainly for the benefit of people who run very high resolution screens and want something that looks a bit more substantial. Installation Extract (unzip) ALMSWISS.FON from the distribution package. If this is your first time installing Almost Swiss, use the Font Palette (choose 'Edit', then 'Add', and type in the name of the temporary directory where you placed the file ALMSWISS.FON). IMPORTANT: If you have an old version of Almost Swiss installed, the file will be "locked" by PMSHELL, meaning that you cannot simply copy the new file over the old one. To replace a previously-installed version, you must either: - Unlock the file ALMSWISS.FON using a tool like REPLMOD or UNLOCK (the latter is part of the LXLite package and is installed by default in eComStation 2.x). - Boot to a command prompt, separate maintenance system, or boot CD and replace the file from there. Supported Characters/Codepages All sizes of Almost Swiss support the following EUGL characters sets: Latin-1, Latin-2, PC Extended, Cyrillic, Baltic, Hebrew (including cantillation marks and Yiddish), Greek, Arabic, Halfwidth Kana (Japanese) and Thai. Terms of Use Almost Swiss may be freely used, redistributed, and/or modified, by any individual, group or organization, for any purpose. (C) 2008-2019 Alexander Taylor http://www.altsan.org

Commenti

The ZIP file link is incorrect; it points to the old version. The correct link is http://www.altsan.org/creative/fonts/almswiss-1_1.zip The WPI link is correct. Also, the screenshot is incorrect and shows the old version, which is different in many ways. Please use http://www.altsan.org/creative/fonts/almost_swiss.png and http://www.altsan.org/creative/fonts/almost_swiss_medium.png
