It took a bit longer than I expected, but the TrueType font based the
Atari 8-bit character set I have been working on is finished. It will be
on my website sometime tomorrow (June 25) at this URL:

http://www2.bitstream.net/~marksim/atarimac/fonts.html

It is actually three fonts:

Atari Classic Chunky
   A pixel-for-pixel interpretation (think "stairsteps")
Atari Classic Smooth
   A version with the jaggies flattened out (think "ramps")
Atari Classic Extrasmooth
   Similar to Smooth but with curves (think "slides")

This is freeware and is available in both Mac and PC (Windows) formats.

(Note: some characters will not be accessible, depending on your OS, since
some of the A8 characters occupy special low-ASCII locations which have
special meanings to Macs and PCs.)
