Music Font design, noteheads

I just find this old (1999) but still interesting essay about designing noteheads.
I will comment below when i will finish to read it.

I was thinking about a parametrical solution for noteheads, as it's one of the musical glyphs that fits the variables of stroke, direction and orientation. There's a little bit of math inside, hope to handle it....

It digs way too much into math... But I like the design process.
Anyway, it lacks of some stuff I was looking for, for example an explanation about countershapes in empty headnotes...
why the half-note countershape seems to be reversed? I have to go deeper inside those issues...
