# Naming conventions for SBCS fonts

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

#### Part 1: Naming conventions for SBCS fonts

#### Part 2: Naming conventions for SBCS 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.
