  1. Hi Parv,

    What does it mean, Untouched WF? Web font? Are they to be considered originals or rips?


    1. parv


      Untouched WF = untouched webfont. It means that the font was used as webfont, ripped from the site and not altered before sharing (usually when they are not protected and don't need to be fixed). We only call them original if they match retail desktop fonts (and can be verified as such at MyFonts). At other forums, they often just label them as originals without verifying.

      Very often, webfonts are TTF while retail desktop fonts from certain foundries are OTF. But in some cases (DSType for instance) the webfonts are OTF. I think the DSType ones are probably original but we can't check since most of the new ones are no longer sold at MyFonts.

      About Feliciano: they are very close to original (I know because I have some of them as original). Same file size but md5 checksums are different.

      Thank you very much for the detailed explanation! Is the kerning retained with Web Font Rips? Or is something else lost that is inferior to the original?

      Webfont rips come in all kinds of sizes and formats. Some have a reduced glyph set, or lack OT features, or can have some problems with the glyph outlines. Sometimes the vertical metrics are different than the original. And very often the internal names are messed up and have to be fixed before you can use them. But a lot of webfonts have a complete glyph set, kerning and OT features. The ones from Feliciano are as good as original, the ones from DSType too (and might even be 100% original). In some (rare) cases, original .otf files are used as webfonts (Latinotype for instance, some recent Suitcase Type...)

  2. Parv,

    I was wondering if you'd like to change my font list on Post #53 CM/Digital Typeface Studio.

    The list was way to long and would have been better if the font names were on scrolling text. 

    My Text editor does not have the <> code tool.

    If you have time and don't mind, maybe you could fix it so it would be easier for others to read.

    If you feel like it's okay the way it is, please disregard my message.

      Hi Jennibee, I fixed your list, no problem! If you can't find the code tool in the editor, it's always possible to add the code manually: 

      begin with [code] and end with [/code]

      Thank you so much Parv. I think the scrolling list is so much neater.

      Also, Thank You for the "code" information, that is helpful.

      Have a great weekend.

    These are OpenType-SVG Color fonts, so should work in any application that supports the format (like recent versions of Photoshop Illustrator, Indesign... I think starting from the 2017 version)
