6 px in size. i needed a small font for my projects so i created Micro Morph
The best measure of a bitmap font is from top of lc ascenders to bottom of lc descenders, so this is best called an "8 point" (or "8 pixel") design. Anyway, it's nice! hhp
Hrant, where did you learn so much stuff? Got any links from which I could bring my bitmap fonts?
Stalking the world of type like a paparazzi chasing a speeding car... ;-) But actually, that bit was opinion more than knowledge. In fact some people (including me a few years ago) would have counted one pixel of "internal leading" as part of any bitmap font (so Micromorph would be a 9), but then I realized that: 1) The "big boys" (like the MS core fonts) measure it flush. 2) It's rare for the descenders of a line to run into the ascenders of the following line, so it's not worth "wasting" the measure. hhp
