This is a little calligraphy nib ladder/line generator I wrote in postscript and php. I put up here to see if anyone else is interested. I didn't put a lot of error checking routines in yet, so I'm sure it's possible to generate something completely useless. I think the fields are self explanatory. I'm interested in feedback. If you think it's useful and would like to see some enhancements, send me an e-mail
