Donald P. Goodman III

Donald P. Goodman III is a practicing attorney in the Commonwealth of Virginia, a graduate of the William and Mary School of Law and of Christendom College with a degree in history and a minor in classical languages. He has contributed several TeX packages for setting religious texts such as catechis (for catechisms) and liturg (for Catholic liturgical texts). In that context, he has designed the DRM font package in 2014.

The DRM (Don's Revised Modern) family of fonts are in Metafont format (for use with TeX). It has many optical sizes and comes in roman, italic and small caps styles. In addition, it has many ornaments, and symbols. Although written in Metafont, the author also provides a set of 103 (!!!) Opentype fonts. The opticals include 5pt (pearl), 7pt (minion), 8pt (brevier), 9pt (bourgeois), 10pt (long primer), 12pt (pica), 14pt (english), 16pt (great primer), 20pt (paragon) and 24pt (double pica). The table below gives a fuller optical size naming picture and its relationship with traditional American and British ways of listing type sizes. There are also Greek fonts. At the publication date, September 2014, the author was still working on the kerning---expect an improved package soon. The DRM fonts are wedge-serifed, and incorporate an odd mix of style elements---some terminals are didone, but other elements are more transitional or Caslonesque. Free download of the 6MB package.

Designer of Dozenal (2008), a metafont package for typesetting documents in base twelve. It includes a macro by David Kastrup for converting positive whole numbers to dozenal from decimal (base ten). It also includes a few other macros, redefines all the standard counters to produce dozenal output, and provides Metafont characters, in Roman, italic, slanted, and boldface versions of each, for ten and eleven (the Pitman characters preferred by the Dozenal Society of Great Britain). These characters were designed to blend well with the Computer Modern fonts.
