Creating a Polish font

Forums: 

Hi there,

ok, you'll have excuse the language I might use, no it's not rude, but I am relatively new to type design. I've been asked by my company, a national newspaper in Ireland to create Polish versions of the typefaces we use. At the moment our typefaces have no Polish characters. I can draw the required characters no problem in Fontlab, I found an excellent article online on how to do this but when it comes to generating the actual font I'm running into difficulties.

Our publishing system ONLY allows Windows postscript fonts which have a character limit of 255. My new glyphs are not showing up in the generated font. So my question is, how do can I achieve this? Many thanks.

regards, Chris
