    Hello Michael,

    I hope you still remember that I am one of the (apparently very few)
    people who paid for Everson Mono. That was more than ten years ago.

    Instead of criticising a term, would you mind proposing a different term?

    Nobody has to weep for me. I actually haven't used Everson Mono much,
    I'm not even sure whether I ever used it, but at the time I found the
    idea that somebody was working on a font that covered Unicode really
    worthy of support.

    Regards, Martin.
