** High Priority **

I get the emails from sign writing groups which is taking so much space
at my work.    Is there a way I could make some changes so I would not
get emails at my work?    I love reading it I just see too
many...especially I was on a summer break and tomorrow is my first day
back to work.... it is time consuming to clean it up... what can I do?

Hello Stefan -
Just for your information…it has also confused me in the past, that the
TrueType Font that Eduardo Trapani developed for the ISWA 2010 is not
the same as the old style TrueType Fonts that have been developed in
FontLab or Fontographer years ago -

They are really very different - a new world with new technology - so
the term “TrueType” seems to apply to more than fonts developed with the
older software programs…there are actually ways that programmers can
create TrueType for thousands and thousands of characters all in one
font, instead of separating them into smaller fonts like the old
TrueType font software does -

Steve presented three presentations at the SignWriting
Symposium…Presentations 11, 19 and 31. Steve’s Presentation 19 was
about Eduardo’s TrueType font, and how it is unusual and special and so
close to being perfect and yet it still needs some technical work that
only certain kinds of experts can help us with…we are still looking for
that expert and we hope to find him or her ;-)

Steve’s Presentation 19

So when we are discussing TrueType we are talking about another kind of
font that has all the characters of the ISWA 2010 in one single file -
hard to imagine? For me too…I still do not know how to explain it to
people ;-)

Machado - If you are out there, please write to me privately - I would
like to ask for your advice and help on Eduardo’s TrueType font - we are
so close to perfect it is painful and yet we are not quite there - And
thank you, Eduardo, for your amazing work -

Val ;-)
