Three new encoders coming online this year:
Mac OS, HP/UX, and Solaris.
New shorter-height fonts (close to the minimum 0.125”) being developed and tested.
Note: the IM barcode is ALWAYS 65 bars
Clearance between barcode and text lines same as clearance between text lines!
Same as POSTNET, except that instead of baseline, you need to look for the centerline!
Maximum dot matrix spacing increased from 0.005 to 0.010 inch.
Increase in the allowed space between dots (voids).
Great tool available from local BSN or MDA
