Glyph Specific Metrics

Is there any way in Font Lab to create glyph specific metrics? For instance, when a capital Y is next to a Capital A I would like to have the Y snuggle up real close with the A, but when the Y is next to a T I don't want it to overlap nearly as much.

Thanks

This is called kerning. In FL you should create many kerning pairs, but make sure your underlying spacing is as even as possible first.

Thanks Bendy,
I am reading about pair specific kerning in the FontLab manual right now. Thanks for the tip.
By the way I checked out your Flickr photostream and really enjoy your fonts.
