I had hoped (in vain, probably) that with the opportunity of the
integration of Unicode and 10646 the more design-sensitive members of
Unicode might have pointed out that a re-evaluation of the glyph guidelines
for the character were a good idea. I can't believe the people at Adobe
etc. are very enthusiactic about it - in fact, I haven't come across a
single person who thinks the guidelines are either a good idea, or relevant
to contemporary type designers' modi operandi.

Interestingly, the lunate form of epsilon is typical of scripts used in the
Byzantine era, a period when the Greek world shifted decidedly *away* from
the western world...
p.s. Michael, sorry about the missed 'egt's!
