This is a <I>Type 3</I> font, with simple shapes and very broad strokes.
It's mostly intended for use in posters;
it creates even clearer tangent-lines than <I>FatSimple</I>
along the top and the bottom of the letters.
<BR>
It differ from <I>FatSimple</I> in that the pointy tops to <B>A</B>,
<B>M</B> and <B>N</B> are broadened to be horizontals.
The give <I>FatBlunt</I> a more 'brutalist' character,
whereas <I>FatSimple</I> is more 'edgy'.
<BR>
Lowercase letters are displayed as SmallCaps,
It includes ISO accents for german and french,
plus digits <B>0</B>-<B>9</B>
and <B>+ - = . , : ; ! ? ' " / | _ ( )</B>
<BR>Remember <I> charpath</I> will not work with any <I>Type 3</I> font.
