I need to automate the creation of a 16-bit font file. Each glyph is available as a PNG or SVG file. I can reconvert to PS if needed.
We have released the 16-bit file based font under the Open Font License: ISWA 2010. I have 37,811 glyphs with codepoints from 1 to 62,504.
Each glyph is available as an individual PNG or SVG file. Each glyph has a unique codepoint. Not all codepoints are assigned. The glyphs do not share a common height or width. The glyphs should always be displayed left then top. The glyphs do not rotate or morph.
The character map should be automated from a few simple rules. There is one formula for a sequence of 3 characters and an algorithm for individual characters. The characters are proposed for plane 1 of the UCS.
Is this possible to automate? Anyone have a suggested process flow with command line tools or custom programs?
I'd appreciate any advice on an individual, company, or software package that could help me get this done quick.
I need a version that will work with the proposed Unicode characters and display the correct glyph rather than the empty block characters.
