Minimum system requirements and font installation instructions

HistoryMichael Harvey designed Ellington for Monotype in 1990. Ellington (named after jazz musician and composer, Duke Ellington) is a text typeface that has a definite calligraphic influence that creates a lively and interesting page. Harvey, a stone carver and lettering artist, is sensitive to the needs of graphic designers, and so designed Ellington with a tall x-height and narrow width, making it accommodating for both economy of space in short texts, and for display work as well.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
Ellington MT Std
Ellington MT Std ExtraBold
Ellington MT Std Light
The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.
|Menu Name||plus Style Option...||selects this font|
|Ellington MT Std||[none]||Ellington MT Std Regular|
|Ellington MT Std||Italic||Ellington MT Std Italic|
|Ellington MT Std||Bold||Ellington MT Std Bold|
|Ellington MT Std||Bold, Italic||Ellington MT Std Bold Italic|
|Ellington MT Std ExtraBold||[none]||Ellington MT Std Extra Bold|
|Ellington MT Std ExtraBold||Italic||Ellington MT Std Extra Bold Italic|
|Ellington MT Std Light||[none]||Ellington MT Std Light|
|Ellington MT Std Light||Italic||Ellington MT Std Light Italic|
On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
