Hi, Nicholas and other people.

I am only now getting up to date with my debian stuff. :-)

I will look into the feasibility of getting Khaled Hosny's XITS fonts
packaged on Debian.

They are based on the STIX fonts (read the name backwards :-) ), they
support things that the regular release don't and he updates the fonts
quickly, responding to feedback from users.

On top of that, he knows a lot of the fonts stuff.

Oh, sure. Thanks for the pointer. I will fix my post. BTW, nice that you
read it. :-)

I think that some of the scripts that I saw could be improved. But more
on that latter.
