Largo's Zodiac ciphers font

Forum member Largo created a fantastic Zodiac ciphers font that is extremely useful for many applications. It kind of got buried in some cipher-related threads so I wanted to make a separate topic for it.

His font was originally in his Peek-a-boo tool in the "fonts" folder.

Direct download for Z340 font: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2ypfvap4fs96n ... n.ttf?dl=0
Direct download for Z408 font: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m6ttx1hhrzgsl82/z408.ttf?dl=0

I adapted Largo's font for web use and combined them into a single font, and made each symbol a constant width, making it easier to display cipher texts in a grid format. I also drew in the missing symbols from Z13 and Z32, and moved the symbols around to match the webtoy transcription. Here is a sample of what the ciphers look like in this font:

Here is a live demonstration of the web-based font: http://zodiackillerciphers.com/combined ... phers.html
And here you can download the font in TrueType format: http://zodiackillerciphers.com/combined ... ebfont.ttf

The font has been getting good use. Examples include smokie treat's spreadsheets:
