Neue Haas Grotesk Text (Round Dots)

Neue Haas Grotesk was originally produced for typesetting by hand in a range of sizes from 5 to 72, but digital Helvetica has always been one-size-fits-all, which leads to unfortunate compromises. In addition to having much looser spacing, Neue Haas Grotesk Text is has a significantly different weight range from the Headline version, as a proper Regular for display looks too light as text, but a proper Medium has the opposite problem. It also includes subtle improvements for text sizes, like ink traps, which keep M or W from clogging in text but look awkward and strange in a headline. This alternate version with round dots, periods, commas, and quotes was added later, by Jack Curry, bringing additional warmth and friendliness to the family.
