Hi, Characters in the private area obviously seemed a good idea to me at some time, although I don't think I could give now a decent rationale for it. One reason was surely the dotless j, and the Indic characters probably ended up there because I toyed with the opentype ligature mechanism.
The numerals in the Adobe private area are probably the "old style" numerals (e.g., 9 with a descender etc.) Best regards, Primož 2008/4/26 Steve White <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>: > > Update of bug #23050 (project freefont): > > Item Group: character replacement issue => glyph(s) incorrect > > Status: Confirmed => In Progress > > _______________________________________________________ > > Follow-up Comment #1: > > I have previously deleted many of these.
