If you’re looking to add a bit of that retro touch to your documents, you could do worse than Sean McNamara’s newly released Silentype Font 2.0 (version 1 was never publicly released). Â From Sean’s blog entry:
I have great pleasure in announcing that v2.0 of my Silentype font is now officially released as a New Year gift to the Apple ][ community…
The letterforms were all independently created by me in 2003 and 2004, with recent modifications to accommodate later OS X versionsâ€™ predilection to fill in the counters on the letters â€œoâ€and â€œOâ€, the number â€œ8â€³ and the ampersand (â€œ&â€). I recognise what it is about those charactersâ€™ counters that is common to them and not with other characters with counters, but I donâ€™t know why that particular attribute caused the counters to fill in current versions of OS X when in 2003 and 2004 OS X as it was then was quite happy to display the characters correctly.
Oh, and Iâ€™ve added a (very) low-res Apple logo to the font at the appropriate location. I may extend the character set further during January, but donâ€™t have any firm plans on that front at the moment.
