My prev post was more of an oblique plea to someone who knows the font
code to please give me some pointers. Worst case scenario that the font
code does need a major overhaul (which may or may not happen), all I
would plan on doing would be leaving a few font slots free for whoever
wants to implement simultaneous WPS fonts. This is looking like enough
work already.
