The GEM font format was first introduced in the mid-1980s with the advent of
Digital Research, Inc.?s GEM (Graphics Environment Manager) operating system
shell. Although GEM never took off as a desktop interface on the PC
platform, it did enjoy significant commercial success in desktop
publishing circles when it became the interface for the popular
Ventura desktop publishing system. Because of this legacy, you can
still find large numbers of GEM-compatible fonts from various public
domain, shareware, and commercial sources.
GEM fonts are normally bitmapped. As such, they suffer from the same issues
that plague all bitmapped fonts. However, some later implementations of the GEM
font format were actually scaleable but never caught on in any significant way.
GEM fonts are also monochrome and can?t support more than two colors per
NOTE: GEM fonts were also quite common on the Atari ST platform. However,
you can?t use these fonts without first converting them since Atari GEM fonts
are encoded somewhat differently than those used on PC-compatible systems.
NOTE: NeoPaint for DOS, a painting program mentioned in Chapter 6 and
included on the book?s accompanying CD-ROM, is compatible with GEM
