RE: 48GX: Singapore vs Indonesia

No clue exactly what happened at this time (it was befor eI joined HP), but the thicker, older font might be an artefact of having to use double shot injection molding as they could not do 'thin' lines...

The move to printed keys allowed to have thiner lines for the caligraphic ends of the Ys and Xs...

Prime still use relatively nice X and Ys (but it was a battle to do so as the "powers to be" wanted us to use the "HP standard font" used in all HP documents, and we had to fight and explain that these were mathematical symbols, not letters and that they therefore needed to stay like this!!!!)


Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
