Fonts & Encodings by Yannis Haralambous, P Scott Horne

By Yannis Haralambous, P Scott Horne

This reference is an interesting and whole consultant to utilizing fonts and typography on the internet and throughout a number of working structures and alertness software program. Fonts & Encodings exhibits you ways to take complete good thing about the outstanding variety of typographic suggestions on hand, with complex fabric that covers every thing from designing glyphs to constructing software program that creates and approaches fonts. The period of ASCII characters on eco-friendly monitors is long past, and leaders comparable to Apple, HP, IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle have followed the Unicode all over the world personality general. but, many software program purposes and websites nonetheless use a bunch of criteria, together with PostScript, TrueType, TeX/Omega, SVG, Fontlab, FontForge, Metafont, Panose, and OpenType. This publication explores each one choice extensive, and offers history in the back of the techniques that include ultra-modern "digital area for writing":

  • Part I introduces Unicode, with a short historical past of codes and encodings together with ASCII. find out about the morass of the information that accompanies each one Unicode personality, and the way Unicode bargains with normalization, the bidirectional set of rules, and the dealing with of East Asian characters.
  • Part II discusses font administration, together with set up, instruments for activation/deactivation, and font offerings for 3 various structures: home windows, the Mac OS, and the X Window process (Unix).
  • Part III offers with the technical use of fonts in particular instances: the TeX typesetting method (and its successor, W, which the writer co-developed) and net pages.
  • Part IV describes tools for classifying fonts: Vox, Alessandrini, and Panose-1, that's utilized by home windows and the CSS typical. find out about current instruments for growing (or enhancing) fonts, together with FontLab and FontForge, and get to grips with OpenType houses and AAT fonts.

Nowhere else will you discover the dear technical info on fonts and typography that software program builders, net builders, and image artists want to know to get typography and fonts to paintings adequately.

Generic Drug Entry Prior To Patent Expiration: An FTC Study by Federal Trade Commission, United States Federal Trade

By Federal Trade Commission, United States Federal Trade Commission

This examine tested even if the behavior that the FTC challenged, which used to be convinced antitrust activities opposed to brand-name and frequent drug businesses, represented remoted cases or is extra usual, and even if the 180-day exclusivity and the 30-month remain provisions of the Hatch- Waxman Amendments are at risk of concepts to hold up or deter client entry to commonplace possible choices to model- identify drug items. The learn focuses completely at the techniques used to facilitate well-known drug industry access sooner than expiration of the patent(s) that defend model- identify drug product.
