Egyptian type: originally, from 1815
on, bold face with heavy slabs or square serifs.
Em space: a space as wide as the
point size of the types. This measurement is relative;
in 12-point type an em space is 12 points wide,
but in 24-point type an em space is 24 points wide.
En space: a space half as wide
as the type is high (half an em space.
Expanded (font): a font in which
the set widths of the characters are wider than
in the standard typeface. (Note: not the intercharacter
space -- that is accomplished through letterspacing
-- but the characters themselves).
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS):
language file format can contain both vector and
bitmap graphics and is supported by virtually all
graphic, illustration, and page-layout programs.
The EPS format is used to transfer PostScript language
artwork between applications. EPS can be easily
exported from most graphics and desktop publishing
Extended type: typefaces that
are wide horizontally -- Hellenic, Latin Wide, Egyptian
Expanded, Microgramma Extended, etc.
