Try Collegiate FLF, if you want an inline version.

If It's not Freshman, check Themes -> Fancy -> Old School for some others that are similar.

It's a mix of Capitals and lower case, with some modifications, possibly from version 1 and 2. The graphic in this request is exactly the same as the one made by the font author, with the colours inverted:

I'm guessing it's kind of a dog tag font

browse the 'dog tag' category :

You should browse Themes -> Fancy -> Stencil, Army as well.

Well, it's not the Flute by Typotheticals, (2006), which, I believe, was designed by Graham Meade, (ex Gem Fonts). That one looks like this:

Tophy, i accept suggestions, but i'll never include "tribal" stuff to my selection, sorry !
To me, it's not related to tattoos, it's just related to french rednecks.

And the last one was already in my selection

Aha! I always suspected that Menhir and Tophy were the same person, but now I have the proof!

rayhan, keep in mind that many of the people who provide suggestions in Font Identification are also Dafont Forum Moderators, and I think most or all of them have chosen a custom avatar. In many cases, their skill at identifying fonts was a major factor in their being chosen as Moderators. Anyone can add a custom avatar to their profile, but most of the people who ask questions in the forums haven't added one. The skull serves the same purpose as the silhouette head on Facebook for people who don't use an avatar, just a 'place holder' for an image.

Impact Label. I think the comma is being used as the apostrophe.

I think the "most similar" would be the $ and # in Beauty Marks

@Claude: My calculator is different than yours, as shown in the graphic, (I don't have Hex/Decimal/Binary conversion). Could you tell me the exact file name of the app, and I'll try to download it from somewhere? If it's a standard Windows app, would it be installed into C:\Windows\system32, or in Program Files?

(Written between posts 21 & 22)

So I can't mathematically calculate an ASCII code by using a U+???? code. That's what I wanted to know. I thought there might be a more efficient way to add specialized symbols than copy/pasting selected glyphs from the Character Map, which is actually faster than consulting a table, and inputting the glyph using the Alt Key and number pad. I'm not so much concerned with learning the codes for individual symbols, I just wanted to know the mathematical relationship, if any, between the ASCII and Unicode designations.

I can see that knowing the code would be very important if one intends to include one of the Unicode glyphs in a font under construction.

In this case, I'm guilty of overestimating the kat's technical knowledge, and his abilities to both read and convey instruction. For that, I apologize.

Didn't I mumble something about ASCII 1645

Yes, I know the codes for the copyright and Five Pointed Arabic Star from earlier in the thread. What I want to know is the correlation between the U+066D and the ASCII 1645. In other words, can I use U+066D to calculate the 1645, using only the keyboard, and possibly the calculator, but no other specialty app? It's like I'm asking you to teach me how to fish, and you give me a fish, which feeds me for tonight, but leaves me hungry again tomorrow.

If the code is U+221E, for example, can you determine the ASCII code without additional information, or do you need to know the font and glyph first, before you can do that?

Dec 16, 2012 at 22:29  [reply]  Ask koeiekat!

@Claude: I can do that with the Character Map, as well. Is there someway to input the U+066D code, using only my keyboard?

Dec 16, 2012 at 20:11  [reply]  Anybody know what this is?

merci, Claude.

Why from FileFlyer and not from High-Logic?

Because the one on FileFlyer has a patch, so it only costs 11 MB of disk space and bandwidth.

Thanks, kat, that MainType looks interesting. I'll install the V4 from FileFlyer and check it out.

You looked at the wrong table on that page. You need the one on the right, ANSI/ISO Latin-1/ANSI Extended ASCII.

No, I didn't. I looked at both tables. I'm very familiar with the one on the left; it's reproduced in the .pdf link in my previous post. I've never seen the chart on the right before.

I just chose the symbol as an example; I wanted to know how to translate the codes shown in the Character Map to the keyboard, not to just know the ANSI code for the copyright.

A better example, perhaps: The Arabic Five Pointed Star, has code U+066D using the Tahoma font. (there are eight points on the star, but "Arabic Five Pointed Star" is the name of the glyph). I inserted an image, because the symbol cannot be reproduced in Forum text. I can put that glyph in a document by opening the Character Map, selecting Tahoma, selecting the glyph, copying it from the CM clipboard, and pasting it into the document. Can I do the same thing, using only my keyboard? I haven't installed the AllChars .msi app yet, but it would serve the same sort of function as the CM.

What I don't know is how the U+066D code translates to the keyboard, if at all. The U likely stands for Unicode, and 066D is a hexadecimal number equal to 468 in decimal, (6*6*13). I want to know how to use that information on my keyboard. It's the same question I asked in post #4 of the thread, I'm just using a glyph that's not in the Extended ASCII range as my example.

@ the experts:

For the Basic Latin character set, is there any significant difference between the LinoType Buxom and BuxomD from URW? How about Buxom EF, from Elsner + Flake? I would expect minimal originality in that one. I have Buxom EF, but only in MAC, so I can't check it out on my PC. The Nick's Fonts version has a lot of Romanian and Moldavian accented characters that I would never use. I have a lot of URW fonts, but I know nothing of their reputation.

Using fonts to create an event poster

I have been put in charge for making a promotional poster/flyer for an event on my college campus. I'm not being paid, just volunteering and the event is a free event.
Is it okay to use fonts from dafont for this? I'm not sure if this counts as commercial use or not.

You could always use a font designated as Free, in which case, permission for both personal and commercial use has already been granted, in advance.
