[squeak-dev] Unable to install a specific TrueType font in 6.0

Hi Stef --

That font only has a deprecated Unicode 1.0 mapping table. And our current "Windows Symbol" support is not compatible with what is in that other table. And we ignore the "Mac Roman" tables at the moment.

Anyway, I added support for those deprecated Unicode mappings in both 6.0 and 6.1alpha. Just hit update in your image.

There are still "holes" in #$¢ø, however, that's an issue in our Bézier Renderer, which ave been there before.

Attached is a TrueType font I use in my game.

In a 5.3 image, I can load it fine.
For example from a file list, using 'install ttf style' works.

In a 6.0 image, 'install TrueType font' seems to work, but I have no
glyphs for most characters and the font is unusable.

I kind of need this specific font if I want to port my game to 6.0 in
its current state, but am at a loss about what to do.

Any help appreciated...
