STEDT Font for Windows

Welcome to the first beta version of STEDT Font for Windows.

This is the first beta release of STEDT Font for Windows. This Windows TrueType font (TTF) is compatible with the present Macintosh release (5.1.2) of STEDT Font, in terms of the encoding of the "Reflex" and "Gloss" fields of the STEDT databases.

Instructions for Beta Testers

  • After installation, download this DECCHAR.txt text file (save it "as source" on your hard drive) and open it in any word processor (not in your web browser).
  • Setting the font to STEDT, characters should display and print as in the following PDF map.
  • Download this STEDTwin.pdf PDF file (save it "as source" on your hard drive) and open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • The number in parentheses in the STEDTwin.pdf map is the decimal character value.
  • The corresponding decimal character value is in the left hand column of the DECCHAR.txt text file.
  • Where a (gray) block in the PDF map has no character, this character is undefined in Windows (two asterisks in the DECCHAR.txt file).
  • Please print out both files, and compare the results.
  • If you note any discrepancies, please print your DECCHAR.txt file to PDF, embedding the STEDT___.TTF font, and send the PDF to STEDT.
