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
charts.unicode.org, you can get an idea of the "feel" I wanted.
