This is what it looks like!

Updated Regular cut

Old Ames has been buffed and polished to perform better at lower resolutions and it comes with a new set of digits and dingbats. Now, not only pairs of two identical letters get automatically swapped for pairs where the second letter is a slightly differing alternate, but the number pairs do that as well.

Now comes with Italic and Bold Italic

No more program-generated faux italics or bolds with Ames Pro. Hooray!

Latin Extended character set

Not only does Ames Pro support every Latin-script using European language, but also many African languages, including: A whole bunch of Bantu languages, Afrikaans, Cape Verdean Creole, Jola-Fonyi, Kalenjin, Malagasy, Sango and Teso.
