I've been using the font Terminus for years as console and coding font.
Now, I do some typesetting, too, and while not using Terminus as monospaced font for print, I need to showcase it in a document I'm working on.
I'm using XeTeX, which has OpenType support build into it. I know there's a TTF version of Terminus available, I've tried that one, and I'm less than happy with what comes out on print. I'd like to have Terminus, which is normally a bitmap font, in an OTF format. OTF supports bitmap fonts, by saving several font sizes into the glyph and grapheme pattern. I was wondering if anyone could advise me the course of action I should take.
I'd rather not use the TTF version of Terminus, as it doesn't look too good.
Either I'd convert the pcf font into something that can be used in XeTeX (
xelatex), or use an OTF version, but I couldn't find that one anywhere on the net.
Please advise what and how I should do.
