I'd like a font so that when people download "German and English Sounds"
and "Old High German" from Gutenberg (both of which I'm currently working
on), they can see the LATIN SMALL Z WITH HOOK BELOW, LATIN SMALL A WITH
MACRON, and the half a dozen other unusual characters those books use,
even if they've never seen them before in their life. I don't care if
it's serif, sans serif or whatever; so long as it's readable it will serve
the purpose of communication. That's all we want - the ability to read
any Unicode document at some rudimentary level.
