Well, I'm assuming by then that FontLab Studio VI will be in non-beta form (right now I'm sticking with FL5 largely because I'm more comfortable with its interface, but also because doing real work in a beta makes me a tad nervous).
(just in case, though, I have my trusty snow-leopard VM for running 32-bit software and PPC software, and SheepShaver for running even older software, and Mini vMac for running *truly* ancient mac software when waxing nostalgic).
Really appreciated your reply. How could we override the Unicode directional if you please?
John Hudson is referring to the use of control codes to override directionality. These would have to be manually inserted into the text. See Chapter 2 of the Unicode Standard (available from www.unicode.org).
The other thing to consider is whether braille printers even use a font at all. A font which prints braille on paper using a LaserPrinter would be of little use to the blind, and I can't see postscript or truetype outlines being of much use to a dedicated braille printer.
