Ok Thanks for that Werner,
I will test mainly using those 2 args, plus the original instructed truetype.

Also,  i would like to test this with fonts that are 'industry standard' of 
good manual TT instructing. I have the Droids and Ubuntu, but am thinking to 
seek permission to test on some proprietary fonts too. Obvious would be from MS 
to test a few Windows System Fonts (as i have those), but there may be even 
better candidates. Anyone here have any contacts they could use to get me a few 
test fonts, plus permission to test?  :)
