$ xart -i -f Weird
weird.flf (version 2)
by: Bas Meijer meijer@info.win.tue.nl bas@damek.kth.se
fixed by: Ryan Youck youck@cs.uregina.ca
some special characters '#%*' etc. are not matching, they are from other fonts.
Explanation of first line:
flf2 - "magic number" for file identification
a - should always be `a', for now
$ - the "hardblank" -- prints as a blank, but can't be smushed
6 - height of a character
5 - height of a character, not including descenders
20 - max line length (excluding comment lines) + a fudge factor
15 - default smushmode for this font (like "-m 15" on command line)
13 - number of comment lines
