Comment #2 on 'Character Requirements for a Nastaliq (Arabic script) font' by priestla on 2016-01-15 12:42:50

Only three of the characters you mention are missing from this list. We will add U+068A and U+06B3. U+0640 (kashida/tatweel) doesn't work in Nastaliq style so we do not include it in this list.

Comment #1 on 'Ethiopic Fantuwua ' by priestla on 2014-07-30 12:13:05

Have you tried the "Ethiopic Fantuwua" font from the WashRa font package?  http://www.senamirmir.org/downloads/washra_fonts.zip Or, is your problem that you want some characters (fidels) added to the font? If so, you might contact the WashRa people to see if they would update the font with the fidels you need.

Comment #1 on 'Inconsistent diacritical marks in character list for Bete-Bendi' by priestla on 2013-08-14 10:38:28

Thanks for your feedback. I'll fix the one that is clearly an error and check on the others. However, I can see why they used U+0131. Up until recently most OSes didn't support U+1DC6 properly and so the dot on the "i" wasn't removed by the OS so they had to use a hack. That shouldn't be needed with Win7 and up. I'll let them know that too.

Comment #1 on 'Designing an "fi" ligature' by priestla on 2013-03-22 06:10:46

I'd be interested in knowing if you are aware that the font will be used with languages requiring combining marks if that also affects type design or not. For example, if you know it will be used by a language requiring "f" "i" tilde, would you design it differently?

Comment #2 on 'Unicode Status (Khmer)' by priestla on 2013-01-09 11:20:43

Since I wasn't sure where those belonged on this page, I went ahead and created a much longer list of documents related to Khmer at the bottom of the entry. Thanks for the encouragement to do so!

Comment #1 on 'Hungarian scripts should be reorganized' by priestla on 2012-07-12 13:44:19

ScriptSource is using  ISO 15924 script codes and names. So, we aren't going to change the name unless the ISO standard changes it.

Regarding categorization...the Latin-based orthography isn't ever going to be listed under "Historical, fictional and academic scripts" because it is Latin script and Latin script is already listed under "Scripts currently in use." We aren't going to list scripts twice just because one orthography is no longer used.
