As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 WHAT IS THIS?
    2 
    3 This is ProFont TrueType, converted to Windows TrueType format
    4 by Mike Smith, with some tweaks added by "ardu".
    5 
    6 Modifications include:
    7 - A Euro character
    8 - Missing characters from the Latin 1 code page
    9 - Full support for CodePage 850. These are mostly the famous
   10   block/box characters you know from DOS. Very useful if you use
   11   Mightnight Commander through PuTTY.
   12 - Fixed metrics so that point size of 9 works correctly. Until now
   13   you had to select 7 to obtain the native point size of 9.
   14 - Added some quick&dirty hinting for point size of 9. Most characters
   15   now match closely the look of the bitmap version.
   16   Don't expect it to look good on anything else than Windows...
