Exclamation / question marks? Possibly slash and backslash. "e" looks weird, isn't it backwards?

Yup, you're right.  ^_^  
Too much cold/flu medication.

A backslash would just be a mirror of a slash. 

   

Only marks left should be quotes/apostrophes and/or parenthesis, I'm thinking. And since the major use of this font would be for ship markings on hulls, I think this font-face is already complete.

Here's the completed font: 

   

And here is an example of the font in use: 

   

Please let me know what you think!  ;-)

Would the "v"s look better with 1x1 half circle bottom? Also, would the comma (including the lower half of the semi-colon) look better a just a 1x1 half circle directly above a 1x1 quarter circle?

Let's test and see.  ;-)

I don't know what others think, but I personally feel that both changes are improvements.

Yes!


RE: Alphabet/font - Magnus Forsberg - 2021-11-06

Is there a way to make all lover case letters the same height?  a, e, s and z stand out very much if you write something in only lower case.
And any font without the nordic, danish and german letters is not complete. And how about the french and spanish letters?
