Whatever way it is done Rev should include it as a standard and then
they can advertise it
includes the ability for kerning and tracking. They can have a
standard key used to enter
the character. Maybe something like a control-space. Of course this
can probably be done
now using key commands available but if they included it as a
standard it would mean a lot
to those who care about it. Since it is so simple why not include it?
