Crop of a specimen of Standard for @symbolset (symbolset.com).
Icons in this shot were set with a font.
Standard is a semantic symbol font that maps icons to keywords.
We just launched our marketing page and are taking pre-orders.
Standard has been a awhile in the making. I'm super excited to be releasing it soon and get it in the hands of other designers and developers.

You just inspired my compulsive purchase.
As a semantics lover I think this is awesome and the symbols look very, very good.
Can I just make some remarks about the website? (please see it as positive feedback!)
1. The font in the "test area" gets cut off at the baseline. Not displaying the lower parts of letters like "g" and "y".
2. The "accessible" example below that area shows 3 out of 4 keywords that don't work (home, chat and settings), maybe a good idea to show working examples there
The rest looks awesome and I'm going to watch this and try to get my workplace interested in using this!
Can you let me know what browser and OS you're using? We'll look into the cutoff. I don't anticipate that being a problem in the release, the icons don't have descenders and shouldn't get cut off :)
That's a good point, thank you. The symbols that work in the test area are just those from a trimmed version of the font made for the site. "imajes" on Hacker News made a list of keywords that work here: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4145213
Glad you like it :)
I use Chrome on Viita 64bit. It looks like the font itself causes the issue, so you might want to consider having the regular font in a default family and then wrapping "keywords" in spans and assign your custom font (or something to that extend).
Cheers and keep it up!
Thanks, Reinier. We'll look into it.
That's exactly the plan for using the font! There are no letters included (to save on file size), so it's meant to be used with other fonts.
Awesome, it's going to be such a nice addition and great for semantic interfaces!
