    Quote from the ReadMe: "Mandatory is a full font developed from the Charles Wright typeface used for UK vehicle registration plates. There is improved stroke separation on the M and W which are pointed at the centre, and the tail of the Q is thinner and clearer.

    Mandatory has been designed to conform to the required proportions –

    Height – 790 units
    Width – 500 units
    Stroke – 140 units
    Sidebearings – 2 x 55 units (Letter spaces – 110 units)
    Word/Group Space – 330 units

    Only the Upper Case letters and the numerals are used for registration plates, although the capital I, which is the same as the 1, is not used and the Q will no longer be used but may still be required for updating old plates.

    For designers, the font is completed with small capitals for the lower case, currency symbols, punctuation marks, printers' symbols and accented characters."
