Actually, a lot of font developers -- probably the majority -- explicitly
allow modifications for personal use. What they do not generally permit is
distribution of modified fonts, and, of course, they also require that you
have a valid license for the original font for every installation of the
modified font. If in doubt, check your license agreement.
Microsoft do not allow modification of their fonts because they view the
fonts as system components.

Theory set out to produce texts that could not be processed successfully
by the commonsensical assumptions that ordinary language puts into play.
There are texts of theory that resist meaning so powerfully ... that the
very process of failing to comprehend the text is part of what it has to offer
