Google Groups seems to have lost my reply to this thread. :/ Anyway, I have decoded most of font.heur and managed to split the font.libf file into its individual components. Font.heur appears to be a table for locating fonts based on ID number, size, and other attributes. Font.libf appears to contain the fonts themselves. Each font in font.libf has two parts. One part is the font metrics, which is the same as in the Mac OS Classic bitmap font format and therefore easy to decode. :) The other part, however, I'm having difficulty with. It doesn't contain a raw bitmap as far as I know. My current theory is that it is somehow compressed, since there are certain patterns mapping bytes in the font part to bytes in the metrics part. So I'm asking if anybody has documentation on the Lisa font manager, or disassemblies from when the Lisa is drawing text, or anything else helpful.
