Note that the quote marks work fine if I force ‘straight quotes’ rather than smart ones — this is my mistake, not the font author’s…
Font of the week: Glass TTY VT220, a font to look like a DEC VT220 screen, obtained by reference to how the glyphs were actually implemented by the CRT.
File is: Glass_TTY_VT220.ttf
Available from: http://sensi.org/~svo/glasstty/
Here’s an example, just screengrabbed from LibreOffice — and I forgot to turn off curly quote marks..
Here’s the text:
Hello, here is my amber screen, looking pretty good, eh? The font is Glass TTY VT220, available from http://sensi.org/~svo/glasstty/.
It is designed to mimic what you’d see on the screen of a DEC VT220 serial terminal from about 1985. Not all the characters are available, although everything that could be entered on such a terminal is there.
You’ll note the quote marks don’t quite cut it, but otherwise it’s pretty nifty.
As noted, the quote marks do cut it. Maybe I’ll suck it into FontForge and see if I can come up with some ‘smart’ quote marks that match the spirit of the font.
