Right...liberation fonts consists of three styles (Sans, Mono, Serif) with
regular, bold, italics and bold\italics.
That's giving us 12 fonts...
Number of glyphs in each font is 668 and glyphsTable is a SparseLargeTable
with size 65536 and chunkSize 255.
Does this look like too much?
You are saying that we should use a unicode TT font with only the greek
plane inside right?
What about the Pango integration with Squeak that you said a few days ago to
the greek team Yoshiki?
Does it do better TT font handling? Maybe we can give you a hand on that...
