    I contributed about 200 or 250 glyphs to the bitmapped font built into
    SC UniPad, but on no account does that make me a "font designer," much
    less a real typographer.

    I'm a software developer who periodically deals with
    internationalization issues. I've developed and maintained numerous
    text databases. I have a hobbyist's level of expertise in linguistics
    and writing systems, and a decent understanding of coding issues. I am
    not a "linguist" or a "script expert."
