thanks. once i've got it done i'll start working on a
handwritten form ( which i might use as italics as
well ) . . . it should be rather less geometric !

you're just about right . . . there are several basic
marks and they combine to form glyphs ( and some can
be used on their own ). this was really done to make
it easier to come up with the ( eventual ) total of 40
glyphs needed. some i think will be anomalous, but
there will be many with repeating patterns. this is
influenced by the structure of chinese characters ( i
mean the combination of a set number of brushstrokes
and of recognisable shapes, rather than the formation
of compound characters ) and also the way hiragana
glyphs are formed

i'm using corel draw, as i have it. not sure it's the
best, but it's functional and i'm fast getting used to
it . . ..
