Hello, Gordon; thanks for your comments.
About these characters: the HP33S has only the standart upper-case set. All others were taken from the constants names and "menus". As you can see, 'j', 'q', 'u' and 'w' were used for holding other existing charaters (one of the most "dramatic" choices of mine was placing the index 'i' for 'j', because there is no 'J' in menus). Many of the "strange" characters are used in the HP33S Constants "catalog". And I guess this is a very good feature.
I decided to do so in order to avoid unused spaces in the font "pack", as you can see when using any font viewer, like MSWindows® Character Map: the complete character sequence has only two gaps, if I am not wrong. It's easier to use when you are picking characters with "Insert Symbol" (MSWord®).
What gave me more trouble was defining dots and commas. Gee! The rest was "piece of cake".
Thank you, Gordon; as aways, your words are very welcome.
And please, guys, feel free suggesting any change. Let's try a new arrangement, if so. As I mentioned before, these TTF files are ours, I'm drawing them for all of you.
