Note: coding fonts reported here in the font news sidebar should be monospace in the re­gular weight; header fonts should have regu­lar, bold, & extra-bold (or black) weights; body fonts should have regular, semi-bold, & bold weights.

Note: a font is deemed a ‘basic’ if it has regular & bold weights, b ‘good’ if regular, semi-bold, & bold weights, c ‘great’ if regular, semi-bold, bold, & extra-bold (or black) weights, and d ‘rich’ if 9 or more weights.

Note: one downside to using free fonts is that, unlike software updates, it can be hard to learn when font updates appear. Font makers rarely update font version numbers. And font news sources may not always report updates, or report them in a timely manner.
