I notice you have left out format 1 kerning tables. I know I found
Apple's docs incomplete when working with them and had to get
clarification from someone at Apple, I can pass that on if it would be
of any help. I've also got a sample font with a format 1 table lying
around if you want to test.

On the other hand no one ever uses them so there may be no point in
implementing them.

It supports almost all of 'morx' and all of 'kern' & 'lcar'. PfaEdit's
fonts seem to work with worldtext.

Glad to see someone else working with Apple fonts. Well done!
