    If I were making this font, I would place all LC letters on the font's baseline. I would align all punctuation in relation to the LC characters.

    But here is where I don't know how the two "baselines" were incorporated. I would opt to have the UC characters' bottoms align near (or at) the descender location.

    Now resuming my hiding...Mike
    Can we see an example, Mike?

    Can you tear up a line of text in Xara, using the baseline adjustments?

    Hi Gary,

    Actually, I *thought* what I was suggesting was what you are showing in the image you added--we might have been responding at the same time:

    Take care, Mike

    Okay, got it.

    If anyone/everyone can chill for 24 hours, I'll align the cap heights to the character heights, and then see how the punctuations fall.

    In answer to your question - yes all releases need to be in before the font can be released. In the future is probably a good idea to have folks submit a release at the beginning of the project rather than at the end. See -- we'll get a system going yet to make the paperworkish stuff easy peasy so we can concentrate on the fun stuff.

    Sorry for the delay, I wasn't sure if I had the right one, so I was waiting for someone to prompt me!

    I agree Barbara, for future projects we should try to get the releases done as each person volunteers.

    Thanks Michelle. That leaves Fred and Christine

    Hi Christine, you still participated and I believe Bill said he was going to try to use glyphs from everyone who contributed so I think you should still post a release. Please I also believe even if none of your glyphs were used you deserve recognition for your contribution just like the rest of us.
