Err... hope i don't annoy but you forgot it even in your 926 chars font, in french we really need the e-in-the-o and its capital. Such common words meaning "heart, sister, beef, knot, egg", etc use it.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 9th august 2012
Thanks for the hint, AFT. Do you mean words like bœuf? The œ is part of the set "Latin Extended-A" if I'm not mistaken. I only did Latin and More Latin here, but I will add the character.

It's definitely included in Modular Blackout, though.

Vielleicht sind J/j/y etwas zu sehr nach unten hin verjüngt?

I'm with beate. Goood job!
Comment by elmoyenique 10th august 2012
Yes, i always found strange this important character was in Latin Extended-A section when all the rest we need in french is actually in the More Latin Set. Because of this, most of the font designers don't do it, because very few fonts push their covering to the Extended-A. And what is even more annoying is that the e-in-the-a character is well featured in the More Latin section.

@AFT yeah, some of those character placements are weird. That's part of the reason why I go too far with some of my fonts. I figure it's better to have a lot of unnessessary glyphs than to be missing a crucial one :P

@laynecom: Nice font ;)
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 10th august 2012
Thanks all!

@AFT: I've included Œ and œ
@beate: Ich habe lange bei Faux Pas Serif drüber nachgedacht, habe mich aber dann doch dazu entschieden, die Spitzen zu lassen. Stärker und runder wäre wahrscheinlich konsistenter, so finde ich's aber interessanter. :-)
