Commented on Wednesday, 5 December 2007 - 11:28am

Thank you, I'm reading all this material (I knew Unicode, but somethings are not very well explained). I apreciate specially the simplification of Mark's answer, it helps to clarify. I'll go on studing.

Is it possible to see some letters created by Incubator and the original...

Thanks for the response.

David, thanks again, this is a very interesting information.
Cameleon works more or less like I presumed, and it's really funny to play with it.

Hrant, Dutch Type?

Hey boys, let's not convert this in a discussion KABK vs Reading.
