Solid outline font used in King's Quest V: Absence Makes The Heart Go Yonder!, (C) 1990 Sierra On-Line.  Sierra Resource File Tag: "font.009" and is paired with the Sierra font "font.008".

This font was used for onle single phrase in the game: "A few hours later....." (occurring twice in the floppy disk version, but only once in the CD-ROM version).  Oddly enough, instead of using the outline font.009, the opening credits used the font.008 twice for a 'drop-shadow' effect...

And while they may have been intentional choices, there are several instances where the outline designs don't follow the patterns found with the majority of other glyphs (missing pixels, perhaps for legibility?). As such, the following characters:

• J O P Q R S X c j m n p q r s u v z ! ;

...have all been 'corrected' within the main set of glyphs; their original designs can be found in the More Latin section.
