Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

Re: Localizable Sentences Experiment font support

I have for some time been writing a novel based around my ideas on using encoded localizable sentences for communication through the language barrier. I have been publishing each chapter on the web as I proceed. Each chapter is published in PDF (Portable Document Format) format. There is no overall ...

The names are still Tipey McTypeface with an i in Tipey. I like the ct ligature and also the fact that you have included the accented characters...

Just one example, many fonts do not support Esperanto characters. Certainly there are some text fonts that do, as those ...
