Hi there folks, I notice that the font page (and notably the sample text) is not aware of the characters supported by the font in question. Obviously, for those fonts which deal with code pages that are far away from Latin, that's not very useful; most of the work that I do is far away from Latin. Could the authors not allow for a font maintainer to provide several example strings that demonstrate the font in question? On another note, but from the same place, the Description text and the FontLog text appear to be fixed with the site's design, which is fair enough. However rather than have 'bold'/'italic' etc. as text editorial options, why not at least add a 'thefontinquestion' modifier, so that the Description text may show off examples, features etc. of the font that is being mentioned. This comes particularly into focus when looking at http://openfontlibrary.org/files/Ben_Griffin/286 The only way in which to =see= what the font does is to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and see a small represenatation of the submitted example jpg!
