Again, if there is a way to prove the font is 100% valid, and there are display problems on the Mac OS X, I could file that bug in the Apple bug system.

Just uploaded a new version that uses "Sathu.ttf", a Unicode font from 
the Mac OS Tiger install disk.

I have bundled "Sathu" in the zip file [Ouch, Steve will be after me] to 
sabe all of you the bother
of overloading your system with fonts you don't need, and for those of 
you who want to try the stack
on other operating systems.


Methinks Scott hath too much faith in Mac OS . . .  :)

sincerely, Richmond.
