New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have a problem: I am working with fontforge on a font for a very complex artificial language (with hundreds of glyphs) that needs a lot of complex ligatures (with for example sovraposition of two or more glyphs).
Something like tibetan, if you want.
I am encoding these glyph in the the unicode private area, and therefore, for istance, I have the following ligature: uniE2C2 + uniE2C2 = uniE2C3
To compose them i use the ccmp funtion.
Now, on my Mac these ligatures work perfectly, but if i try to put two uniE2C2 in text editor on windows (like Word, or even openoffice) they don't make any ligature...
My problems are:
what have I to do?
Is it possible that it is due to the Unicode Private Area?
And indeed, given that these ligatures are for an artificial language and for an artificial script (that therefore, obviously, doesn't appear in the fontforge lists), what have i to set in the language aoptions? Default? or Martian?
Thank in advance
