  • Page 248: Some Basic Facts About Fonts, Attributes Of Fonts

    Some Basic Facts about Fonts This section summarizes some of the basic facts you should know about fonts. What Is a Font? A font is a collection of letters and symbols used when printing a document. In general, a group of letters and symbols sharing a common design is referred to as a font.

  • Page 249: Typeface, Stroke Weight, Style

    Style Style refers to the shape of the characters. The printer function can print in two styles: upright and italic. With some fonts, like CourierPS and Letter Gothic, the terms "Oblique" and "Slanted"...

  • Page 250: Point Size, Pitch (cpi)

    One inch is divided into 72 points and 1 point is 1/72 of an inch (about 0.35 mm). The printer function has bitmapped fonts and scalable fonts available. The bitmapped fonts are fixed in size, but the scalable fonts are not fixed in size.

  • Page 251: Character Width (fixed And Ps), Orientation

    Orientation Orientation refers to the direction of printing. The printer function can print using two different paper orientations: portrait and landscape. With portrait orientation, text is printed across the width of the paper (short edge), and with landscape orientation, text is printed across the length of the paper (long edge).

  • Page 252: Bitmapped Fonts, Symbol Set, Fonts And Scalable Fonts

    Symbol Set When you print the letter "A," the host computer sends a code corresponding to "A" (hexadecimal 41 is an example of this) to the machine. This code is referred to as the character code. The machine stores an internal representation of each character, and selects from among these character patterns the pattern corresponding to the received code.

  • Page 253: Scalable Fonts

    Bitmapped fonts are fixed in size and specified by characteristics called "attributes," such as typeface, stroke weight, style and so on. Various types of bitmapped fonts are produced by the combination of these attributes. Scalable Fonts With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from the one point to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments.

  • Page 254: Standard Scalable Fonts (pcl)

    Standard Scalable Fonts (PCL) With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from one point to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments. (The maximum range of scaling depends on the size of the memory installed in the machine and the size of the paper used.) The following scalable typefaces are included with the machine.
