perfectly, including the alignment of phi. Thank you most sincerely for
all your efforts to make this 100%! I have already mentioned my
excitement over the new fonts to a vase-painting colleague in

happy that the character-set available to me now will allow the best
possible means of representing vase-inscriptions as they appear,
