Some Font Resources

When I was trying to figure out what is the font in this graph which appears in a syntax book published by Blackwell, I found some good font resources.

1. A font recognizer web site http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

2. Palatino – A good font for printing and reading. It’s also the one used in the graph above.

3. A large collection of fonts – Adobe Font Folio 11.

  1. Zapf’s very similar Palladio (supposedly produced after a falling-out with Linotype) is part of the set of fonts URW(++?) open-sourced. As such it is available without cost and is already present in or packaged for many popular Linux distributions. (TTF conversions are also available — search for urwfonts-ttf — but the common set is internationalized and I’ve had trouble getting things like the em-dash to match up.)

    Unfortunately, as some have discovered, the Palladio fonts can pose a bit of a challenge when used for display. Part of this was due to hinting bugs in the fonts themselves (see http://www.michaelshell.org/tex/testflow/ ), so make sure you have the latest versions; the rest can be down to the vagaries of font rendering engines.

  2. They find that if one domain makes a bit of money, then two
    or three or four will make more money. At this writing (January, 2010) the going rate for unlimited domains with ample amounts of server-side HD
    storage and bandwidth, is about $3. Saa – S – Software as a Service – the user
    simply has access to applications running on a cloud platform.

  3. For example, the news of a new agreement with
    a company credit card for purchases 12 installments without interest.
    When you’re doing a 9-5 job in a multinational corporation, you’re only answerable for the set of tasks that are given to you.
    This infiltration of bad internet marketing schemes has made too many people weary of
    trusting anything that is offered online.
