The Ultimate Apple II Font

Download the world's most complete Apple II text font, in TrueType format. Works on Mac OS X, Windows, or any operating system that supports TrueType.

The 40-column version is called Print Char 21.
The 80-column version is called PR Number 3.

Also download the corresponding keyboard layout for Mac OS X, called IN Number Zero. Option key enables access to inverse characters. Control-Shift enables access to MouseText characters.

Additional characters have been added to the font to support all of ISO-Latin-1, Windows ANSI, and MacRoman, as well as box drawing characters and other miscellaneous Unicode characters. These additional characters have been modeled after the actual accented characters on international versions of the Apple II where possible. MouseText is encoded at 0x80-0x9F, and at the appropriate Unicode code points where possible.

This font packs a lot of stuff into the Unicode Private Use Area for special effects. ISO-Latin-1 and MouseText (0x00-0xFF) are mirrored at 0xE000-0xE0FF. Inverted versions of the same characters are at 0xE100-0xE1FF.

Patterns to render low-resolution graphics are at 0xE200-0xE20F (top half, zero-width) and 0xE210-0xE21F (bottom half, 7 pixel width). Visual representations of Applesoft BASIC tokens are at 0xE280-0xE2FF.

Sabine 10-Bit Text System characters are at 0xE800-0xEBFF in Unicode Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic order, and at 0xEC00-0xEFFF in their original order. (These characters are 8x8 rather than 7x8.)

Other characters are sprinkled throughout the Unicode code space.
