Hi Drake!

You are right about U+2404 and U+2405: they are exchanged.

The reason is embarrassing: the application FontForge, which we use to
build the fonts, has little icons showing representations of the
letters.  These icons are exchanged in FontForge, and I followed the
icons rather than the Unicode specimen.

A fix has been submitted to FreeFont CVS.

As to U+240E SYMBOL FOR SHIFT OUT, the Unicode specimen
Shows this represented as SS.  If that is wrong, you should take it up
with Unicode.


P.S. Debian is a terrible place to post bug reports about packages
Debian doesn't produce.
They do not report the bugs to the producers.  It is like tossing
pennies into a well.
Please post further bugs to FreeFont
