Hi people, Can somebody recommend a good pixelfont? What is the name of the most common font used? Thanks, /Henriko
Arguably, one of most widely used pixel fonts is Jason Kottke's Silkscreen. Whether or not it
Hi Grant, Silkscreen is quite OK, but it's a bit too small for the purpose - for instance a menu (only 8 pt) Look at this attached JPEG. Can you tell what's been used here? /Henriko
Couldn't say. It's not Underware's Unibody 8 Smallcaps, but that would be nice! Randy
Looks like Mini7 http://www.wpdfd.com/pixelfonts.htm Similar is Sevenet http://www.fountain.nu/catalogue/sevenet.asp
I like Matthew Bardram's Remote if you're looking to save a bit of horizontal screen space.
Martin Fredrikson's OH LA LA can be helpful too
Hey guys, Some damn good suggestions there, thanks! Sevenet is definately my favorite and it's perfect for my purpose Cheers, /Henriko

Wow! Fundamental and Quadratis are really nice! Also check out my bitmap font link collection.
That's because Peter Bruhn rules the school.
