TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I would like to obtain detailed information about each of the fields in the
definition. Can anyone point me in the right direction? :>)
In particular, the field fourth from the right, which in the above definition
contains the letter "p", I think defines the type of spacing between letters.
Does "p" stand for proportional? In Courier definitions the content of this
field is "m". Does this stand for mono? How many actual points is the "mono"
space? In the Japanese fonts we use, this field contains "c". Does anyone
know what this means?
Any help would be gratefully received:>)
