I am not sure whether I am interpreting the OTF (and/or TTF) spec
correctly, but the 'post' table uses the .notdef name repeatedly (for
the first three names in the table, as well as for many more starting at
index 51242) which I think doesn't make sense - it should only be
present once: for the first glyph at index 0.
Could this be a reason FontBook complains?
I'd be happy to double check a variant of Code2000 that does not have
duplicate .notdef names...
