Thank you very much.

I'm quite fluent in Pascal, so I hope it won't be too

You've given me a great deal of food for thought in
your previous post.  Typography is, indeed, an
interesting topic.  I first took an interst in it when
I took a print shop class in high school and learned
to set type by hand.  But I haven't learned much of
anything about digital typography so it's pretty new
to me.
