do I use it?

child of six can do it. If you don't
have a child of six, use two threes.
Only the File menu is active, and
it has only three options:
now have absolute control over your
fonts, and you really don't have much
of a safety net. If you incorrectly
edit some fields which you don't completely
understand, the font may become unusable:
we have no way of bullet-proofing
all the possible combinations of changes.
In fact, there are a fair number of
fields that we don't really know the

could at the time this utility was
created. The examples tried above
are useful and work correctly in the
intended applications. So, press on,
find new and possibly valuable settings,
and learn to enjoy living on the edge!
