    I'm taking the time to review font handling in preparation to the conference.
    Some time ago we already agreed on a number of tasks to be done in a second step after the first definition of the font structure.

    Targets of this phase:
    1. Move command sequences from the font handling dtd to the command sequence dtd.
    2. Edit field names to have more MS Windows independent naming conventions.
    3. Get a better understanding, which fields are more font technology specific and which are more device implementation specific.
    4. Think about an as easy as possible job for font companies to create font descriptions.
    5. Create two sample fonts.
    Courier and Arial with characters from 0020 to 007E and from 00A0 to 00FF only.

    As in many cases I am willing to do the initial work, but would appreciate some help when settling it down.
    Who is willing to help me some time tomorrow considering my results as it could be done in this short time?
