Oh yeah, the hidden feature of ttfautohint called "ttfautoshred" really
shines now in Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. Shreds much better than in
0.3 ;)

Also, as little as I understand of TrueType hinting, Rogier van Dalen's
great little TrueType hinting debugger
(, Qt-based GPL)
throws various errors on ttfautohint-processed fonts. I have no idea how
realiable this debugger is, but it does open other fonts fine.



May success attend your efforts,
