You could try having a little compassion.

Frankly I have been having these problems for some time, and I have
mentioned it to others, and I have not had any help.

What are you trying to say, that I should generate Gaelic fonts in
Latin 1 encoding so I can have more customers? If that were the case,
then my fonts would be inauthentic and useless for Irish. If people
want inauthentic and useless fonts they can use American Uncial. I
won't make them.

I am perfectly well aware that I could have more customers and make
more money if these fonts were available on the Windows platform. I'm
really not that much of a fool. On the other hand, I am stuck with
the tools I have right now, and I don't have a solution.

I feel worse than you do, believe me.
