    I'm not referring to the older fonts he distributed; it's true what you say about them. I was referring to some experiments here at the institute shortly after VOLT became available. (I know Gregor quite well; actually, it was him who got me started on OpenType at all ;) It wasn't really a big thing, and I don't know if he ever distributed any of it, so it isn't really much to talk about.
