Variegated tongue question, TeX, OT?
- Was going to post this on TYPO-L but figured it would just turn into a
roundaround thread. There are more than a few "heavyhitters" here who
I bet could help me out on this.
I know what an "ear" is for a letterform/character but have only relatively
recently come across the variegated "tongue." This is usually in reference
to manuscript bookwork or very early printed bookwork (specifically B42)
and, oddly enough, TeX.
My understanding is that this was (is?) for word spacing adjustment. Anyone
know of anything planned in regard to OpenType or beyond?
- Hi everybody, well the Heidelberg is up and running, I just need a little
information re the photopolymer plate that I have had to make for this
particular job, can somebody tell me what exposure times they use under UV
lights, I use a upright plate maker with a bank of 6 UV tubes about one and
a half to two inches away from the image, and expose it for around 3
minutes, and wash it out in a wash out tank for approximately 8 minutes.
The smaller print doesn't tend to come out very well the rest of it looks
just fine, I am wondering if my washout time is too long or I haven't
exposed it long enough or too much, can anyone help?
