DEVELOPER'S NOTE

Dina is a monospace bitmap font, primarily aimed at programmers. It is relatively compact to allow a lot of code on screen, while (hopefully) clear enough to remain readable even at high resolutions.

I made this font after having tried all the free programming fonts I could find. Somehow there was some detail in each of them that meant I could not work with them in the long run.

The closest to perfect I found was the Proggy font, so I started building Dina using Proggy as the base, and with inspiration from Tobi, Fixedsys and some old DOS fonts I used to love.

Some of the design goals were:

- Monospaced

- Should be easy to distinguish between `j i l 1 I`

- Should be easy to distinguish between `o O 0`

- Operators should line up horizontally `- + * =`

- Brackets should line up horizontally and vertically `< ( { [ ] } ) >`

- Punctuation should be clear `., :; ' "`

- Symbols used in programming languages should look right `& @ % $ #`

- No other characters that look too similar `gqy z2Z s5S 8B CG6 DO uv`

- Still has to be pleasant to read passages of text
