Neo-humanist sans typefaces

The typophiles discuss neo-humanist sans typefaces. Quoting one poster, Humanist Sans started in England with Edward Johnston (Johnston Underground) and Eric Gill (Gill Sans). There's a 80's trend of typefaces called SuperFamily or Serial that integrate Humanist Sans in their family. They were odd examples before the 80's concerning SuperFamily. Neo Humanist Sans typefaces are refined, soft and perfect for text and some offer ligatures as in the Old style Serifs of the Renaissance. They sometimes have the flavor of the Neo Grotesque like Helvetica but tamed with the Renaissance readability. Albert Jan Pool agrees with the definition Neo-Humanist Sans is a Humanist Sans tamed with Neo-Grotesque properties. Now, on to the list compiled from the discussion:
