I'm sorry, this doesn't make sense.

How does FontForge being able to read the ttf files reflect on their usablility?
The ttf files are for installation in operating systems, and have been
tested on several.

I'm not sure when FontForge made its big change.

I have been using one from CVS of 20080215.

I can say, this CVS version of FontForge is vastly superior in terms
of stability and features from the one that was in my Ubuntu Gutsy
distribution.  I would go so far as to say, its crashing bugs make
that version of FontForge borderline useless.

Gotta go!  Later!
