OK, here is another stupid question:
Are composites also an Open Type "feature"?
(as I work with this, I am thinking that composites are a FC "feature" and when a font is exported, simple, discrete characters are created)
Since I cannot even stack combining glyphs properly without OT, I've concluded that creating discrete characters is my only recourse.
Sample with OT positioning:
Sample without OT adjustments:
I am so bummed that apparently there is little to no universal support for OT, particularly in the realm of ereaders.
Now I'm looking to create at least 48 more characters in the PUA, $E000-$E10B and $F100 to ????
PS Not that I can use it now but, it would be helpful if the Open Type Designer also showed the WinAscent line
