Here's one for you.
Japanese Sign Language uses fingerspelling of the syllabary. See
http://www.egt.ie/standards/sgn/sgn-kana-chart.pdf for what it looks like.
I need to make a font -- not a Unicode font -- that will work on an
ordinary Japanese OS (Mac, PC, whatever) which will have no kanji in it
whatsoever, but which will have the fingerspelling signs in positions for
katakana and hiragana such that text written in them can be read by
I have no idea how I should encode such a font. Help?
