Hey, I've been playing around with the fonts on your site and there are a
few there that I think will come in handy! The set of Stewart ADF fonts are
also very similar to the Vera fonts that I use and will fit right in on the
many imported OpenOffice drawings that I will be using. Nice.

I took a good look at the VeraSansDemi and VeraSansMedium fonts that you
made. The Medium is too light, as there needs to be a clear distinction
between the name of the route and regular text. The Demi is better but still
seems too light though. 
Is there a weight between Bold and Demi? This is a PDF of Demi including an
outline of 0.8% which is much closer to what I'm looking for -

This is Bold http://www.hermannoyantiques.co.za/Bold.pdf
and this is Demi http://www.hermannoyantiques.co.za/Demibold.pdf

Anyway, enjoy the Tour if they happen to go through your area!
