Verdorgia™ font news: April 1, 2010 - Redmond, WA - Construction workers stopped the excavation for building 1,629 at Microsoft's Redmond campus when crews uncovered a 44MB Syquest-brand storage cartridge packed with astonishing archival data.Verdana and Georgia, two of the most widely used fonts found on nearly every computer in the world, appear to have had a sort of digital tryst during their years in storage and together produced a font called VerdorgiaThe new Verdorgia font data seems to have been born through an unusual process called 'binary conception' and contains recognizable attributes from each of its well-known parents. Digital Fontologists were called on to the scene to evaluate the integrity of the data. Joshua Hadley, Type Engineer for Ascender Corporation, remarked There is a certain degree of charm about the font. One can imagine Verdana and Georgia conjoined in the glow of a flashing green LED and the low hum of a cooling fan. It's about as romantic as you get in the font software business." Steve Matteson, Type Director for Ascender Corporation, was asked to be Verdorgia's godfather. Under his careful tutelage Verdorgia matured into a fully-grown Mac and Windows compatible font with a sturdy Latin 1 character set. He said "The discovery of Verdorgia brought a tear to my eye. I can't wait to see it used on the label of a fine bottle of wine or at least on the masthead of a counterculture newspaper." All kidding aside, to commemorate this joyous occasion, the font aficionados at Ascender have agreed to make an OpenType version of the Verdorgia font available for purchase and instant download."

Glyph Composition/Decomposition

Tag: ccmp

Function: To minimize the number of glyph alternates, it is sometimes desired to decompose a character into two glyphs. Additionally, it may be preferable to compose two characters into a single glyph for better glyph processing. This feature permits such composition/decompostion. The feature should be processed as the first feature processed, and should be processed only when it is called. In Syriac, the character 0x0732 is a combining mark that has a dot above AND a dot below the base character. To avoid multiple glyph variants to fit all base glyphs, the character is decomposed into two glyphs...a dot above and a dot below. These two glyphs can then be correctly placed using GPOS. In Arabic it might be preferred to combine the shadda with fatha (0x0651, 0x064E) into a ligature before processing shapes. This allows the font vendor to do special handling of the mark combination when doing further processing without requiring larger contextual rules.
