Description:

I created this font to be able to use it for industrial use! - It's released under the SIL Open Font license, to enable you to make changes and use it for whatever purpose you see fit...

Last changelog:

Version 0.03 is NOT a complete implementation of the characters used on dotMatrix displays.

On the other hand it holds a lot of customized characters used in my own projects. (Most displays has memory for custom characters)

welcome to the font design world. Some notes about this font:

* please don't use the GPL for fonts, it's not a licence which is suitable for them (it doesn't allow for embedding in pdf for example, if you don't add extra clauses to the GPL). A much better licence is the OFL (Open Font Licence) (see http://scripts.sil.org/OFL). In FontForge there's a button to automatically add that licence in the font info dialog.

* also, include the licence in the font, right now it just has a copyright notice from you, not telling which licence it's being released under.

* Latin1 encoding is so old now, please re-encode to Unicode for a proper encoding.

* if you relicense under the open font licence, consider posting it to the Open Font Library http://www.openfontlibrary.org/

Greetings

Done, I think!

Can I add all my custom characters to the blank characters in FontForge, or what's the concensus?
