# Naming conventions for SBCS fonts

The next two tables illustrate the naming conventions for SBCS expanded core fonts.

The seventh character in the naming convention, “P” in, represents the point size or pitch size of the font. The sizes of typographic and mixed-pitch fonts are expressed in points, which is a vertical measurement indicating the general size of the font. One point is 1/72 inch. The sizes of uniformly spaced fronts are expressed in pitch, which is the number of characters that can be printed in 1 inch of text. The next table shows the point and pitch sizes available for the SBCS font AFP typeface names. See Summary table for SBCS fonts for a list of SBCS fonts by font type, language group, and AFP typeface name.
