What an excellent exposition. And how I agree. I did not find anything which needs changing.

Joe.

I finally got around to updating my Scanhand Review page for version 3.1 on my new site. I hadn't realised that I updated it on my NTL page, but not on my www.softerviews.org site.

I welcome comments from users who use Scanhand more than I do. Since I have FontCreator, I tend to use that more.
