I already told you that your approach cost Project Gutenberg time and
effort. In fact, had it been a new font encoding instead of a variant
on a old DOS code page, we possibly would have tossed that project and
all that work had been done on it.

It's not standards compliant. If it doesn't work on IE, and sometimes
doesn't work on Firefox, then it hardly qualifies as a solution in my
