    Ah, superb! The 'pe' is stunning too, as is 'ty'. So many details I could mention.

    Ha, indeed! I'll only mention one more (for now) – the 'e' swash with ogonek has such a great visual shape.

    @Claire Coullon That's the limit of language support. eogonek or ccedilla looks strange in "final" versions. We decided to remove some language support in some rare case of Swashes or Final version as the result was so poor. Above letters draw the line between what still acceptable but far perfect to what isn't.

    Ah I can imagine, that makes a lot of sense. When there's a prominent swash or extended stroke, it must be practically impossible with some of the diacritics that require really precise and/or quite strict positioning. The downside to such extensive character sets I suppose!
