Would I mind? See my notes about "Open Content" and have fun! Actually, I've already made a font for "Abibin." I needed it in order to create the chart and the sample sentences. I'm not totally happy with it though. I could send you the TTF if you'd like to try improving it. I don't have a proper font creation program, so I just used CorelDRAW! to create & export to TTF. It was a trick getting the vowel marks to land before the cursor (on the previous character) and not advance. The vertical spacing is also a problem because of the long descenders. As for "Agryziexabieuie," I need to finalize the choice of characters first. If you look at the Georgian and Armenian fonts on, you can get an idea of the "feel" I wanted.
