In the thread http://typophile.com/node/103643, a question was raised that can be reformulated as follows: "how can one build the latin small letter alpha?", which is uni0251 (in the IPA extensions). Even with a serif font, its lower part appears to be that of a d and its upper part that of a q. My question here is how to do that programmatically.
A fully functional, freeware OpenType font editor/designer for windows.
Allows you to design, edit and convert OpenType TrueType (.ttf) and PostScript (.otf) fonts.
Does anyone have a preference between Superpolator or UFOstretch? Does anyone use both? Just curious, looking into both right now.
