Source Code Pro was designed by Paul D. Hunt as a companion to Source Sans. This complementary family was adapted from the Source design due to a request to create a monospaced version for coding applications. Source Code preserves the design features and vertical proportions of Source Sans, but alters the glyph widths so that they are uniform across all glyphs and weights. Although this family was designed specifically for coding environments, for which a regular weight will typically suffice, Source Code has been made available in the same weight range as the corresponding Source Sans design.<br><br>Source Code Pro currently supports a wide range of languages using the Latin script, and includes all the characters in the Adobe Latin 4 glyph set. As an open source project, it is expected that incremental updates will be made over time to extend glyph set coverage and functionality. Future releases are expected to add support for Greek and Cyrillic scripts, italics, and other features documented on the project page at <A HREF="">Open@Adobe</A>, which is hosted by®. If you are interested in contributing to this open source project, please visit this project page for information on how to become involved. Source Code Pro can be adapted and redistributed according to the terms of the <A HREF="">Open Font License (OFL) agreement</A>.
<p><strong>Menu Names And Style Linking</strong> </p>
<p>In many Windows&reg; applications, instead of every font appearing on
the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of
the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the
bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be
accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic
and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the
following base style font names in the menu:</p>
<p>Source Code Pro<br>
Source Code Pro Black<br>
Source Code Pro ExtraLight<br>
Source Code Pro Light<br>
Source Code Pro Medium<br>
Source Code Pro Semibold<br></p>
<p>The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name
and then a style option following the guide below.</p>
<table border="0">
<tr> <td>Menu Name</td> <td> </td> <td>plus Style Option... </td> <td> </td> <td>selects this font</td> </tr>
<tr> <td>Source Code Pro</td> <td> </td> <td>[none]</td> <td> </td> <td>Source Code Pro Regular</td> </tr>
<tr> <td>Source Code Pro</td> <td> </td> <td>Bold</td> <td> </td> <td>Source Code Pro Bold</td> </tr>

<p>On the Mac OS, although each font appears as a separate entry on the
font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links.
Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described
above for Windows) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with
many applications, such as Microsoft&reg; Word and Adobe PageMaker&reg;,
although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications
such as recent versions of Illustrator&reg;, Photoshop&reg; or
<p>One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked
variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will
either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of
the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print
