    We have been working on that for some time
    ( - but we are not experts with that.
    However, the usual procedure is to use a font editor like pfaedit
    ( and cut-paste the glyphs to the proper
    places so that they occupy the proper places.
    However pfaedit has some problems with ttf files, and you may use some
    commercial font developing tools (no ideas on that).
