Trip­li­cate is used for code sam­ples and other mono­spaced type­set­ting in this book (e.g., one space be­tween sen­tences). True, my of­fi­cial ad­vice is that in gen­eral you should avoid mono­spaced fonts. But in some cases, a mono­spaced font is the right tool for the job. So why not have a nice one?

  1. Trip­li­cate has true ital­ics, real small caps, old­style fig­ures, swash caps, box-draw­ing char­ac­ters, and other superfluities.

  2. Trip­li­cate in­cludes a Code vari­ant with char­ac­ters op­ti­mized for pro­gram­ming and ter­mi­nal win­dows (also seen in Why Racket? Why Lisp?).

  3. Of in­ter­est to screen­writ­ers: Trip­li­cate also in­cludes a Short vari­ant that oc­cu­pies the same hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal space as the Mac OS Courier sys­tem font, so it’s easy to switch with­out al­ter­ing your doc­u­ment templates.

  4. Trip­li­cate has a short, plain-Eng­lish li­cense that in­cludes per­mis­sion to use it in PDFs, web­sites, apps, and elec­tronic books.

  5. If the fonts don’t suit your needs, you have 30 days to can­cel your li­cense and get a refund.
