I'm unclear as to what your question is asking.

Sorry. A collection of letters constructed from bricks.

Not what you asked for, but I've made an alphabet of only lower case letters, using only edge lines.

I ended up using this too, thanks!

What is your "license" for the parts? Public domain?

I've never thought much about this question. What should I write, if I wanted add a licence line?
It feels wrong to use the standard ldraw line referring to a CAreadme.txt

If you find them useful, go ahead, as long as I remain as author of the files.

The problem is I want to use them in a model that is published online where other people can download it, as well as your files.

Creative Commons has some good licenses. You can take a look at them.

Inspired by this topic, and starting with works found in this thread, I've been compiling a typeface of "legal" (i.e. not requiring any jumper plates) tile-based letters and numbers.

To help others, I'll post the DAT file here, once I'm done. ;-)  

I've also added some common punctuation marks. So far, I've got the period, the comma, the colon, the semicolon, and the hyphen. Any other marks you think we should have?
