See this¹ list as a starting point -- my personal preference is Fontforge in combination with some vector graphics program. It possibly has those options you want. However I don't know in how far those are workable with current font rendering techniques. Font rendering is not very neography-friendly. You also might want to try your luck with SIL's Graphite². Regards Carsten ¹) ²) BTW, David, my Thunderbird automatically inserts your private email address instead of the list's one. I don't know whether that's a problem on my end or yours. <lurk mode="on"> -- Siruna, 24' Talbang 2318 ya 29:34:33 pd Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 06:59:44 pm
