The vertical lines of the letter H are heavy and the cross-bar is composed of two light lines. One vertical line of the letter M is heavy and the other light, and oneinolinetl line of the letter M is heavy and the other light. Both vertical lines of the letter N are light and the inclined line heavy. The vertical line of the letter-T is heavy and the cross-line at the top light.
