Winfonts list[edit]

Font or (font) or (typeface)[edit]

Currently we have article names with Font as part of the name, or (font) after the name, or (typeface) after the name. Sometimes both names work because of a redirect, sometimes only (font) works, and sometimes only (typeface) works. The examples above tell the whole story.

Questions for the collaborators:

  1. Can we have a standard way to do these font names, and if so, what would it be?
  2. Do we need to add redirect pages for the instances where the non-standard way does not work?
  3. Should we make an effort to rename the unusual instances, like Abaddon Font above?

Please number your answers. I am willing to work on applying the standard way to existing articles. Someone else should enforce the standard way for new articles. --DThomsen8 (talk) 14:31, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
