Lack of standardized engraving fonts-format

In the Engraving world, which exists first of all because of Engraving letters, fonts, more exactly, the formats are not standardized.

Each producer of engraving machines, laser systems or independent producers of engraving software have its own font formats, so that the fonts can't be mutual used.

A lot of engravers-users who realized this problems in practice, leave this field and don't appear at the producers as buyers of newer and more expensive models.

Buyers of other countries, which don't see its letters at the producer, who offer them its new machine and don't think about the buying.

Engravers need a new engraving font format .eff

 A unforeseeable long time will be needed for the producers to agree and make new programs for a new engraving font format .eff, so that we suggest another possible solution of this problem.

A new standardized simple .txt file for each character particularly will be made. A group of txt. files in one folder with info file and text kerning table should present the archival standardized engraving font.

Each producer would make its own small compiler, which every archival font would compile in its fonts-format. Each user of his machines would be a possible buyer and he would gladly buy such a compiler as a special program module.

By compiling already existing fonts in the archival format; the producers who have a good selection of fonts would offer the whole engraving world its fonts, but not only like today to buyers of his machines.

Such a solution wouldn't demand any change of the existing engraving programs, so we think that it is the most simple and easy acceptable solution.
