Meaningless sentence[edit]

The current version of the article says the font "has been created to get financial features, bank-oriented specifically." I'm hesitant to just delete it, but I can't work out what it means. If somebody can figure it out, please edit to make it clear! Cheers, Dricherby (talk) 21:46, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

The font was originally used on machine readable bank documents, such as bills payable by bank/postal transfer. For example, it is used for the machine readable line on "giro" payment forms in some countries. I have cleaned up the summary to make this a bit clearer without adding original research about the specific document types. Jbohmdk (talk) 05:26, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
