Hi Carl, are you sure?

Doc - NR + CG: Clarify Emmentaler is the 'font' and Feta/Parmesan are glyphs

   Issue 4966

   Distinguish between Emmentaler
   the 'font' and Feta/Parmesan
   glyphs that make up the
   Emmentaler font family.

That is quite imprecise wording: Feta and Parmesan are subsets of the Emmentaler font, not individual glyphs. Whether ‘font name’ in that NR table is also imprecise is a matter of little importance IMO – it’s the least confusing choice of words and I don’t see any need to change it.

Best, Simon
