A series of resources for font developers. Refer to readme files included in downloadable archives for install and usage notes.
Naming files [.nam]:
maps unicode values to Postscript names
Encoding files [.enc]:
A series of ‘encoding’ files which use Postscript names to build and manage character/glyph sets. Includes both production naming schemes as well as AGL-compliant naming schemes; these can be mapped from production to AGL and back using a renaming script (see Fontlab Python Resources) in conjunction with renaming files.
The whole kit & kaboodle:
All the above files in a single archive.
Readme’s for .nam files are included in each as comments at the beginning of each text.
Encoding files (.enc) should be placed into FontLab’s ‘Encoding’ directory. Naming files (.nam) should be placed in FontLab’s ‘Mapping’ directory.
