  • Since they're already packaged up as PBF files could we use them directly?

    I was wondering about that. It feels like maybe it's not as compact a format as it could be (even our naively stored 28px renaissance font is 8.5k, whereas the pbf is 10k), but maybe that doesn't matter if a lot of the time it'll be in external flash anyway. It does handle non-ascii chars though which is potentially very useful.

    I'd feel happier if there were a bunch of tools out there for working with the format, but it doesn't seem like there's a great deal at the moment... So I'm still on the fence a bit.

    Maybe for the size picking, we just make that code a library for now if it is needed at all, and then see if it gets used a lot?
