SIL TypeTuner for Font
TypeTuner documentation on creating Tuner-ready fonts.
TypeTuner can change the default glyphs, line metrics, and behaviors in specially prepared fonts.
SIL ViewGlyph — Font Viewing
The SIL ViewGlyph utility is a font browser for Windows — it lets you see what is in a font.
Among its most useful features, ViewGlyph allows you to see a font's contents through different eyes, so to
speak. Want to know what the font looks like when used by a Unicode application? How about when the font is
moved to a Macintosh? Or, suppose I have the multilingual extensions installed and want to know what a font
looks like when viewed through a particular codepage? ViewGlyph can show you the raw glyph palette, which is
useful if you are writing smarts (i.e. OpenType, Graphite, or AAT tables) for your
font. You can view certain TrueType font tables (name and cmap) and see various font metrics. Finally, ViewGlyph is useful for investigating how
Windows maps 8-bit characters into Unicode through various codepages.

Installing XeTeX with Fink's
The XeTeX installer merges software into an existing TeX installation. However, users of Fink's teTeX package
may prefer not to install into the /sw hierarchy, as this is normally managed exclusively by Fink. As an
alternative, this page provides notes on manually installing XeTeX alongside an existing teTeX system.
