I remember reading once that if you were showing a sample of a font, there were specific letters you should use as an example. Those letters were the most likely to be different among various fonts. For example, a "q" can be written several different ways. Does anyone know what the other letters were that they suggest using to show an example of a font?

I have only ever seen "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".

That shows all the alphabet. Are you looking for something shorter though?

Yes, I've seen where they picked maybe 4 letters - the Q was one of them.

I vaguely remember seeing Q, J, F, and S. M might be included, too.

Lowercase G and A are also good examples.
