    Quite apart from the inappropriateness of this announcement to the Unicode
    list (dozens of fonts are released every month, and there is no need for
    any of them to be announced in this forum), or the inappropriateness of
    your design to e.g. typesetting Middle English (or any human language),
    your font contains dozens of glyph outline and table errors. I suggest you
    get your hands on the MS Font Validator* and check your fonts before
    releasing them to the public.
