The DEPLOF font was designed by David Elata (MEMS Lab, Technion, http://mems.technion.ac.il) and kindly provided for other users of CleWin. The font will significantly reduce file sizes and is designed to prevent small features (e.g. the two islands inside an etched '8') to fly off during sacrificial release.
