i somehow managed to get unipad for free, but maybe it's some form of honesty system and i'm being dishonest . . . or maybe it's an old or beta version. anyway, anyone know of any way of forming vertical script. i REALLY want one for bac and i'm at a complete loss ( short of writing in the arabic direction and turning the page -90 degrees ! i also want to be able to ligature the characters correctly, so it looks like a bac font will be a while in the making ) bn ===== bnathyuw | landan | arR stamp the sunshine out | angelfish your tears came like anaesthesia | phèdre __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
