fpl – SC and OsF fonts for URW Pal­la­dio L

The FPL Fonts pro­vide a set of SC/OsF fonts for URW Pal­la­dio L which are com­pat­i­ble with re­spect to met­rics with the Palatino SC/OsF fonts from Adobe. Note that it is not my aim to ex­actly re­pro­duce the out­lines of the orig­i­nal Adobe fonts. The SC and OsF in the FPL Fonts were de­signed with the glyphs from URW Pal­la­dio L as start­ing point. For some glyphs (e.g. ‘o’) I got the best re­sult by scal­ing and bold­en­ing. For oth­ers (e.g. ‘h’) shift­ing se­lected por­tions of the char­ac­ter gave more sat­is­fy­ing re­sults. All this was done us­ing the free font ed­i­tor Fon­tForge. The kern­ing data in these fonts comes from Wal­ter Sch­midt’s im­proved Palatino met­rics.

use is en­abled by the math­pazo pack­age, which is part of the psnfss dis­tri­bu­tion.
