TrueType Font CHESS LEIPZIG
Update: August 8, 1998.

This font has been designed with figures found in a chess book of the
beginning of this century. The book was printed in the German city of
Leipzig, one of the major editorial centers of the world. The font was named
by Hans Bodlaender, webmaster of the page 'The Chess Variant Pages' of the
Universiteit Utrecht. He sent me a copy of a chess diagram from the Leipzig
book.

The drawings was created in Corel Draw 3.0 and exported to TTF format in
Corel Draw 7.0. I made the font in the "Colegio La Salle de San Cristobal"
(La Salle School of San Cristobal), located in the pleasant mountains of the
south of Mexico; in order to expand our collection of chess fonts. The
font is freeware, I hope it is useful for the chess buddies. If you want to
repay us, you can send us some other fonts for creating chess diagrams (we
are collecting them). Your comments and suggestions would be welcome; please
send them to either of address that appear below.

LEIPFONT.TTF CHESS LEIPZIG font - Ver. 1.1
CHESLEIP.DOC Sample and keymap.

The font is installed in Windows, as in any other TTF font. It will be
helpful to you for making chess diagrams and figurine notation in the word
processors which are run under Windows. The file CHESLEIP.DOC which
accompanies this file is made on Word 6.0, and contains a sample of the
creation of diagrams in a word proccesor and a keymap of this font. You will
not see these characters until the 'Chess Leipzig' font is installed in
your computer. The distribution of the figures on the keyboard is the same
as in the CHESS MARROQUIN font, as follows:


DIAGRAM BORDERS:
SINGLE DOUBLE EXTRA *
Top left corner 1 ! or 033 a - A
Top border 2 " 034
Top right corner 3 # 035 s - S

* The EXTRA keys contain round corners. The keys (x), (X), (.), and (:)
contain auxiliary symbols to indicate individual movements of the pieces.

NOTE: Also you find borders with the coordinates of chessboard. For simple
borders, type the ASCII codes from 0192 to 0207, and for double
borders from 0224 to 0239. Don't forget to type [Alt] and the ZERO
which goes with each code to generate these characters.

The figurine notation pieces are in the ASCII codes from 0162 to 0167.

I recommend you to print the .DOC file and see the complete keymap.
