In the new days, too. Full Unicode fonts invariably involve typographical compromises: they are not ideal for any of the scripts they present, as a rule, because they have to be compatible with the entire range of scripts. So in a fully Unicode world, we can expect applications to handle mixed fonts composed of subfonts. -- John Cowan <jcowan@...> I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
