I am new to the wonderful world of fonts. A colleague wants me to convert
his MAC font to work on the PC. I have managed to get this working more or
less correctly, however there are a couple of problems.
In the converted font pressing SPACE gives a diacritic character which
should be mapped to HEX B6 (as it is on the MAC). A couple of the other
characters in the extended set are OK when viewed in fontographer, but
cannot be used from the True Type font. There are also problems with
'smart quotes' which give diacritic characters instead of quotation marks.
As I say, I am new to all this. If any of you have resolved similar
problems I would be grateful for any advice you can give. Failing that,
some pointers to literature dealing with MAC/PC font conversion issues
would also be appreciated.
