    I have no objections to high quality commercial fonts and if i had the
    available money I'd have one custom made to meet the needs of some
    publications I want to type set.

    It is difficult to obtain sufficient information about commercial fonts and
    the open type features they support, and the glyph variants and language
    systems they support without actually testing them first hand.

    For instance when i work on Yolngu languages I have different glyph
    requirements than with Southern Sudanese languages. With the current state
    of web technologies, this requires different fonts.
