I have a complete Russian Cyrillic set (working on full Cyrillic set right 
now, and on "bolds".... wish they'd have italics on Links...)

Once again: who needs that Hiragana/Katakana without kanji, tell me, please. 
Moreover, I've got relatively full (CJK included) Bitstream Cyberbit on this 
very Linux box I use Links, who's gonna cut it, re-outline, hint, and 
antialiase more than 35 thousand xxxxx.png files? So, when and if Links 
authors ever try to make Links fully Unicode/Web encodings compatible (it 
means, among others, a *correct* support of at least THREE Japanese 
codepages), that Links version (my guess it would sound something like 
3.1pre12, hehe....) would be more or less freetype2-compatible for 
rasterizing trutypes and capable of using mozilla layout engine.
"Brain" guy would give me his permission, and I'd  upload my re-designed and 
re-hinted Russian pngs. As soon as, that is... Stimmt?

So, what's your problem with 'Mehanika'? Out of these two, it's exactly 
'Mahanica' which is wrong transliteration.

it's copying of (presumably fuller) /century_school-medium-blabla... between 
versions, but don't do that: there's cleaner set. With "1/4", "1/3", "3/4", 
or whatever you were complaining about a while ago.
