redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The
fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded,
redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved

however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply
to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

&gt; Justement &#231;a concerne l&#8217;article, j&#8217;ai besoin de quelques informations<br/>
&gt; et je sais que tu as les r&#233;ponses.<br/>
&gt; Tu me disais que Michel Olive avait propos&#233; un syst&#232;me de fonts pour&#8230;<br/>
&gt; la SNCB ou la STIB ?<br/>
&gt; Pour&#160;les deux, quel est le syst&#232;me en place? D&#8217;o&#249; vient-il? Belge?</p>
<p>&#8212;</p>
<p>2011/10/2 Pierre Huyghebaert xxx@speculoos.com&gt;<br/>
Michel Olyff a r&#233;pondu &#224; un appel de ce qui s&#8217;appelait le fond des routes, national, vers 1975.<br/>
Ils utilisaient jusque l&#224; des caract&#232;res que les planches appellaient Alfabet ou Alphabet selon la langue.<br/>
Il y avait le type I, II, III, IV et V soit des chasses diff&#233;rentes en majuscules et une &#8220;police&#8221; juste pour les minuscules!<br/>
Son nouveau syst&#232;me signal&#233;tique une fois au point, tr&#232;s moderniste type Frutiger, il a fait produire une &#233;tude comparative de lisibilit&#233;, sur un mode scientifique typique des ann&#233;es 70.<br/>
Mais le fonctionnaire cadre en poste &#224; l&#8217;&#233;poque, que j&#8217;ai rencontr&#233; &#224; la fin de sa carri&#232;re et juste apr&#232;s le d&#233;mant&#232;lement r&#233;gional de son institution fin des ann&#233;es 90, m&#8217;a expliqu&#233; avoir recul&#233; devant le prix demand&#233; par Olyff, pourtant raisonnable : 800000 francs belges soit 20000 euros, qui &#224; l&#8217;&#233;poque devait bien valoir le double. Il a d&#233;cid&#233; d&#8217;opter pour la SNV suisse, gratuite&#8230;<br/>
La SNCB continue parfois a utiliser l&#8217;Alfphabet, vaille que vaille, dans des versions tr&#232;s mal vectoris&#233;es, et m&#233;lang&#233;es au pire, type Arial.<br/>
La STIB l&#8217;a aussi utilis&#233; mais &#224; depuis longtemps vari&#233; ses choix, largement vers l&#8217;Helvetica dans la m&#233;tro, et depuis quelques ann&#233;es avec son changement d&#8217;identit&#233;, une fonte custom transitionnelle &#224; la hollandaise.</p></body>
