      Hi, just a clarification… in the dark magenta red color, I’ve overlayed Gill Sans Display ExtraBold (Monotype)… Gill Kayo does not seem to match as closely as ExtraBold… also the “O dieresis” character is actually the normal “O” character with two “periods” spread horizontally…

      Good catch, Michael! You are absolutely right, this isn’t Kayo, but Gill Sans Display ExtraBold. I’ve changed the typeface tag. We don’t have entries for all styles, that’s why now Gill Sans Regular is displayed.

      For the dieresis: Yes, such modifications are not uncommon in signs. Fonts typically are optimized for the use in text sizes. Some details need to be adjusted when used extra large.
