>> I’m trying to find the name (or font) of the Newton system font, used to display info in system windows. Any ideas?
> Do you mean the font used in alert boxes and similar interface elements, like this:
> The font is named Simple and is based on the bitmapped version of Geneva found on Mac OS.
> The Newton uses another sans serif font named (appropriately) System, which is based on the Espy family of typefaces.
Whoops ... upon closer examination, the alert boxes use System as well.
There are slight differences in some of the letterforms found in Simple.
Here's a screenshot showing the differences in the 9 point bitmaps for Simple, System, and a third-party font installed on my Newton called Condensed Gothic.
