Can someone explain this redirect? Icebob99 (talk) 16:02, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

@Icebob99: - sure! See here. Well-known font on which there isn't enough material for an article really. Some similar typefaces have been released by other foundries, but it's by far the best-known for bundling with Office. Blythwood (talk) 17:42, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! I appreciate it. Icebob99 (talk) 21:19, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Draft article[edit]

Wide Latin or Latin Wide is a slab serif font available in Microsoft products. The font is noted for its extremely wide and thick letters and sharp, angular serifs.

It was one of the original fonts created by Stephenson Blake in 1940, digitised and offered with Microsoft Office.[1]
