That makes sense. So does this mean that the more number of glyphs a font
has, the bigger the ps/pdf file size will be? Because to make a font look
nicer (and for people like me to save some debugging time) one would want
to add more glyphs for ligatures instead of complex OpenType rules... Has
anyone come up with a middle point?


It was previously a question of finding out whether or not life had to
have a meaning to be lived.  It now becomes clear, on the contrary, that
it will be lived all the better if it has no meaning.
