The advent of low-cost phototypesetters is bringing the art of
typography out of the print shops and into the everyday world of
people who work with computers. (Perhaps it will invade homes too
before long; Hewlett-Packard now markets a typesetter for 3,500 US).
Computer scientists have an increasing need to know about such things as
font design and font storage, line-breaking algorithms and hyphenation,
page make-up and figure placement. This report brings together three
separate articles on the subject, entitled The Letter, The Line,
and The Page. Each stands alone, but they are included under one
cover for convenience. A table of contents for each appears overpage.
The aim is to tell you what you need to know to work with computer
typesetting equipment. Mention is made of processes used in traditional
technology when this is helpful for historical background and to
understand terminology. Otherwise, no attempt is made to cover traditional
aspects of typography (which is a very large subject) - the intended audience
comprises computer people, not graphic arts people.
