Programming Power Font

...for Lisp

I've always liked the Proggy font, the bold punctuation really makes things stand out especially, especially if you program in Lisp where parens aren't just syntactic sugar, they represent functions and power.

So after getting my mits on the Inconsolata font, I did some modifications to create a version with bold punctuation.  It's especially helpful in environments that don't offer syntax coloration.

An example:

Re: Programming Power Font

Wow! This is my new default font.

Re: Programming Power Font

That's excellent! The font is under the SIL (a GPLish font license) and thus you made a derivative! Brilliant!


Re: Programming Power Font

at 12pt. and 9pt. on windows 7, the # character looks like more like || (the horizontal lines disappear). i can make this change if i change the magnification, but then the problem just shifts to other font sizes. it would be great if this could be fixed.

Re: Programming Power Font

Have you tried fiddling around with your cleartype settings? 


Re: Programming Power Font

I like the font. On my macbook pro, in Coda, the " and @ are almost completely filled in and dificult to recognize. Is there a non-bold version in the works that keeps the bold punctuation?

Re: Programming Power Font

I've got access to a Mac and will see what I can do.
