      The old digital ITC Honda (© 1992 Corel) was poor beyond belief, with crappy spacing and an eszett that better should have been named efzett . Good to see that some of the issues have been fixed in the meantime. Some glyphs, however, still fall short compared to the original (?) version as seen above, cf. a/r/t.

      What a lucky i—p combination! Spiekermann at its very finest.

      The glyphs for a, r, and t are alternates that were included in the original ITC Honda, see the glyph set posted by Stephen.
