+# A copy of the 'creep' font by romeovs but with a strict character bounding box
+
+## Notes
+* mintty, as of version of 2.7.6, requires `RowSpacing=-1` in the `.minttyrc` file for the box drawing glyphs not to be invisible.
+ * This is found in `$HOME/.minttyrc` for `Cygwin` use, or
+ * `%LOCALAPPDATA%\wsltty\home\%USERNAME%\.minttyrc` for `wsltty` use
+ * Through Git bisect, I found that this commit causes the breakage, although I'm not sure if it is a bug or feature. https://github.com/mintty/mintty/commit/2cc746667595e08f57b12cfa0df0b67787762620
+
+## Introduction
+I love romeovs's creep font, but I think you could only use it well in Apple's Terminal.app
+because it has negative line and character width spacing, which the font requires to be spaced correctly.
+The root cause of this appears to be because some glyphs are bigger than the 5px by 11px bounding box,
+causing most terminals to think a much bigger box is necessary for the general ASCII glyphs.
+
+In order to fix this issue, I manually hand painted all the glyphs from the 'creep' font in fontforge.
+This was probably not the smartest way, but I did not feel like researching a way to import it by code.
+On the plus side, I was watching a few movies while drawing these glyphs, so it wasn't too bad ;-)
+
+After doing this I could understand why some characters extend past the bounding box, as 5x11 is ridiculously small
+for the more complicated glyphs. However, to get it to work nicely on terminals and editors without negative spacing support,
+I had to use my best judgement and truncate or modify certain glpyhs so they all fit without exceptions. This of course
+is not as nice, and arguably makes certain glyphs much less recognizable, but I felt it was an acceptable compromise since
+they do not appear often.
+
+### Result
+
+By maintaining the strict 5x11 bounding box, I was able to get the font working in all the programs I typically use that don't support fancy spacing adjustment:
+* XTerm (BDF format)
+* UXRvt (BDF format)
+* X11 (BDF format)
+* Windows GVim (TTF with embedded bitmaps)
+* mintty (TTF with embedded bitmap, add "LineSpacing=-1" to config file to get 11px per row height, add "LineSpacing=0" for newer builds (Apr 8 2016)).
+* Notepad.exe (TTF with embedded bitmaps)
+
+Now I have crazy awesome code density :-)
