New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm working on a handwriting font that I would like to make semi-random. I alrady have glyphs for primary and alternate forms set up in fontlab. I tried to read through the Microsoft OpenType spec but it was like eating a box of rocks, a little hard to swallow. All I want to do is code the font so that "ss" and other dual characters that I set up will automatically be replaced with "s s.Alt" etc.
Can someone point me to an easy guide to the programming side of OTFs, or let me know which code sequence I should be using?
