This font is based on a sample of 'dainty' Chancery writing, most probably published in 1716, and most probably written by the German writing master Michael Baurenfeind.

Apart from the *long s* on the number sign, you'll find some alternate characters, and lots of swashes in this font. Those are:

- a complicated underline swash on the underscore
- a more simple underline swash on the bar and broken bar sign
- an alternate *s* on the 'less than' sign. This is the original *s* from the template (I didn't like it).
- an alternate *r* on the 'greater than' sign
- a swashed *l* on the left bracket
- a swashed *h* on the right bracket
- a swashed *b* on the long s sign
- a swash on the left curly bracket (to be used like an accent)
- a swash on the right curly bracket (to be used like an accent)
- a swash on the ASCII tilde (to be used like an accent).

The ornament on the micro sign has been inspired by a detail from a 17th century book on fountain architecture.

UPDATE 2010 has redesigned all of the composite glyphs (correcting the *dcaron*, *L/lcaron*, and *tcaron*), and enlarged the dashes.
