Thats my first attempt on grey pixel fonts. Compare here the two versions, with and without greys. I think that grey in such small sizes works great, more legible.

I am still experiment with greys on fog, waiting to test Flashfonter now. Your comments are wellcome.

I think the grays are making a huge (positive) difference.

Nice work Miguel. Make sure to check white on black as well - there's a delicate balance to strike.

Flashfonter doesn't support the greys you can get in fog/fontlab ... does it?

very glad I started this party :]

sorry for dual post. slow net day. impatiently, I broke the form.

While I'm wasting space, Miguel, I challenge you to do a full character set. I put one in Halogen and it about broke me. x__X

For me,the challenge is making a pro pack pixel fonts with grayscale, with complete figures for flash web designers, and NTT Docomo cellphones, pdas...

Sugar will be available with full character set like all my bitmapys..

Hi Miguel.

It makes a big difference of what kind of monitor you're looking at it with. On a CRT the b/w version looks better crisper vs blurry. On a flatscreen the aliased version seems smoother not blurry or jaggy. Better include both!

Good job Miguel.
Does "Sugar" blur in Photoshop?

Darryl, it sounds like you're hitting the technical quicksand in grayscale pixelfont design?

Nah just asking coz im having this problem, when i choose crisp it appears fine but when i choose smooth its gets blurry. I kinda figured out the problem.

crumbs, the grey pixels sure do make a heck of a (positive)
difference! NIce work, Miguel, as per usual. I have often
wondered whether looking at these little fella's on screen
all the time hurts your eyes more than "regular" type design?

Very Nice. IMHO, I think zero

Why the difference in lc 'a' form in the two fonts?
