The Hershey Font Explorer allows the classic set of Hershey Fonts to be appreciated both as such, as well as in their native stroke-by-stroke "R Format".

By way of a bonus, Hershey's entire set of fonts are also provided in the files area as downloadable archives. The archived fonts have been rendered in three modern formats:

(1) A graphical (PNG) Format

(2) A new, parser-firendly, one-line-per-glyph ASCII R Format

(3) The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Format for use with HTML5

Feel free to contact me via the blog at my web site if you would like to geek-out over new features, related projects (etc.)
