'ROSART' is a high quality font containing full hinting for
correct rendering at small point sizes and a total of 62 kerning pairs for
correct character spacing. It is supplied 'as is' and no warranty is implied
or given by the author. 'ROSART' is a display font and is not really suited
to body text. It is best used at 18 points and above but will render down to
8 point without trouble. The font was developed in 1757 by J.F. Rosart, the then owner
of the Enschede Foundary in Holland. Rosart only defined the upper case characters,
six punctuation marks and two diacritics. The font is considered by many as being
rather crude, and this version makes no attempt to improve on the character outlines,
preferring to stay true to the original. It is also for this reason that no attempt
has been made to enlarge the character set, particulary the figures 0 to 9 which are
conspicuous by their absence. It was hand traced in order to achieve a high quality
outline and compiled using Type Designer 3.1. This font represents
approximately 300 man-hours of work.

The latest version of this font is always available for download from the
file list of the fonts conference on the Cix conferencing system. The author
would appreciate notification of any problems experienced with this font
together with any suggestions for improvements.
