looking at the glyph set included in a truetype font (WGL4?), some
thoughts on glyph naming:
- they have an invsmile where inv means `reverse video'
- prime/ double prime are called minute / second
another thing, about radicals again. A friend of mine, typographer in
the outer (xpress) world was very surprized by tex's behaviour to use
PS rules for building the extensible part of the radical (instead of a
glyph). I think his remark had to do with resolution dependant PS
yielding an inconsistent result in a PDF viewed on screen. However, it
seems obvious that a rule construct cannot be hinted, although a small
bar could be: is there any good reason to have tex compute the rule
geometry rather than just putting enough small overlapping bars as in
some plain tex macro as \hrulefill (if memory serves) ?

multiplié par sept. Ce n'est pas la production de richesses qui est
en panne mais leur distribution équitable. »
