PE stands for Pan-European and refers to the character set or variety of glyphs you will find in the font. For example, there is an interesting article about the development of Skolar Sans PE here: https://www.rosettatype.com/blog/2016/02/02/Skolar-Sans-Pan-European From Fontshop: https://www.fontshop.com/content/language-support Pan-European 1 (W06) ...

There's more than EM and EN spaces (see below). These are used in advanced typesetting to create optical adjustments between elements or to avoid using repeated spaces. So instead of typing Space multiple times to move something, you can use an EM space to have a clean file with no repeated spaces. In extreme cases you can use an EM space with a blown up ...

Expert set fonts are additional fonts sold with professional font families. Often they would have genuine small caps as the lower-case, text figures for the numerals, swash capitals in the capital positions (in italic), and maybe ligatures at some codepoint or other (font design studios used to have standards for those; I've checked an old manual for ...

Some typographic traditions call for the use of these fractioned spaces. For example, in French. To add to Lucian's answer, using these spaces to replace a double-space for example, will sometimes improve your workflow. For example, I typically find/change double spaces to single space from client material, but we typically need to use a double space ...

This isn't using the standard TeX Computer Modern font family: it seems to be some kind of Garamond. My guess is that this is either EB Garamond 12, or Adobe Garamond, or Adobe Garamond Premier, all of which have a standard default italic 'k' that looks just like this.

Logos are usually designed specifically for the title -- so you won't find a font that will be able to write out the name. Sometimes people make full fonts based on a title like "Jurassic Park" Something like GN Kill Gothic U might be a good start and then you would have to change the kerning and maybe add some flourishes in Illustrator or Photoshop.

I'm afraid that just part of the job. The individual characters of two fonts can differ in many ways. I can't really see a way to systematically categorize fonts to avoid this issue. Even changing from one version of a font to another can cause your text to reflow. Once you have begun fine tuning your layout it's almost impossible to change the font without ...

First, you need to use a font which has that symbol. A font may or may not have indian characters, and if it doesn't, no shortcut's going to work. Second, Windows shortcuts won't necessarily have the same effect in Illustrator. If that shortcut is assigned to some other action in Illustrator, or that character in that font file has a code assigned different ...

The original Garamond didn’t start as a font. It was a lettertype, on a very old version of the printing press, back in the 1500’s (yes, Garamond is that old). Old lettertypes such as Garamond were not just images on a screen, they first had to be carved out of steel. Now, beyond the difficulty in manipulating metal back in the 1500s, each of these sets of ...
