FWIW: Danny is fully Unicode!

I've mentioned a few times I have Word 2002 running on a Windows XP Home
system, giving me great powers to create Unicode documents! I have plenty of
fonts for that sorta thing, and I have both the great and small "Unicode
fonts" (Arial Unicode MS and Lucida Unicode). I also have a bunch of
Arabic/Persian/Urdu fonts, and Win XP automatically connects the characters
for me, even including the many ligatures included in fonts like Traditional
Arabic and Courier New (the later versions with Hebrew and Arabic support).
If I plug in (Alef-) Lam-Lam-Heh, I get the Allah glyph.

What's more: I have OpenType fonts for Devanagari, Tamil and other Indic
scripts, but that's not much help for anyone not running Windows 2000 or XP.

Just letting y'all know if you need help encoding a natlang script for a
conlang, or a natlang, or what not. And my services are free; I got plenty
of free time on my hands being disabled and all....
