A *bitmap font of a particular *ppem. Strikes can be embedded in TrueType (and *OpenType) fonts to avoid *hinting tricky *glyphs at certain ppem sizes. They use the *'EBDT' and *'EBLC' tables (in Windows) or the *'bdat' and 'bloc' tables (in Apple GX). N.B. Since such bitmap embedding was not part of TrueType's original specification, the bitmaps will not work on older Macintosh systems or Windows 3.1 - the *outline and *hints will be used instead.
Occurs when employees deliberately refuse to perform their jobs and/or form picket lines outside the employer's premisses to prevent or discourage others from working in their place or conducting business with the employer.
