Sans[edit]

If it's Unicode, then why the heck is it called Lucida Sans Unicode? Jeez, the article should explain that. Awesimo 14:46, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Linked to Sans-serif; hope this explains it. Nbarth 01:22, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Give metrics?[edit]

You opened the font in FontCreator, and got to Format -> Settings, and got to the Metrics tab, and the metrics are: Typo ascender: 1604 Ascender: 2246 Win ascent: 2246 Descender: -901 Win descent: -901 Line gap: don't know Typo line gap: 168

The original had 243 glyphs, but the Unicode one has 1776 glyphs. 222.233.98.207 (talk) 15:25, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
