Bezier splines can be used to define the outlines of attractive fonts for high resolution laser printers. Pratt (1985) has shown how Pitteway’s conic drawing algorithm can be constrained to work with integers only, with the control of start and end points necessary to avoid bleeding from the seedfill of the outlines. Modern display devices cannot match the resolution of the printers, but many offer a grey-scale capability which can be used to improve the appearance of the edges bewteen lit and unlit regions. The conic drawing algorithm can be adapted for this purpose, while retaining integer control.
