    That's a safe observation to make. I'm compelled to point out, though,
    that gracious acceptance isn't necessarily the same as blind acceptance.

    Isn't it the best typesetting of Unicode Vai you've ever seen?

    Since this is electronic text, a font developer may make any adjustments
    to glyph design and kerning deemed desirable, display the results with
    the font being developed, and compare those results with the original.

    Using a font during its development to populate charts is all very well.
    Displaying some kind of running text with that font is even better.
    So, having several pages of computer plain-text Unicode Vai is very
    helpful, indeed. Additional examples would be graciously accepted.

    Best regards,
