It's not a font. It's a photoshopped composite of an (original) ð and m from an anglo-saxon manuscript that was later turned into a vector image. (Actually gimped, rather than photoshopped).

What font was used to make the <dm/> logo?

It's not a font. It's a photoshopped composite of an (original) ð and m from an anglo-saxon manuscript that was later turned into a vector image. (Actually gimped, rather than photoshopped).

The d is the body of the ð, the / before the > is from the cross-stroke, and the m is just the m. The < and > are the back stroke of the ð if I remember aright, turned and inverted in the case of <

The MS is Cambridge Corpus Christi College MS 41 (A copy of the Old English Bede) and the letters were from p. 322 (I used it because the B1 scribe has a great clear hand and Cædmon's Hymn is on the page, so I had it in my collection).

I can't remember exactly, any more, but I think it is just the first ð and the first m on the page.
