The font is OK.  As I've mentioned before, it is *not* possible to
edit this font with FontLab or FontForge!  You need a special editor
to handle those rare fonts which use bytecode to scale and shift

This is completely useless with this font.

Yes, the font looks similar.  No idea whether this is still a `tricky'
font, or whether the font designer has decided to `expand' the
subglyphs.  For example, I have an old version of Microsoft's
`mingtiu.ttc' (version 3.21 from 2001, having a size of 8MByte) which
is similar to the BKLGIB+FA.ttf font.  A more recent one, version 7
from 2008 (delivered with Windows 7, having a size of 31MByte), is a
`normal' TTC.
