Here’s Noptical as it was meant to be. Two years in the making, still an ugly font! But look: better spacing, 1333 glyphs, all latin variants you could wish for (including Vietnamese), Greek, Cyrillic, Braille, Yijing hexagrams, the not yet Unicode-encoded Rouble sign, interrobang (after a design by Adien Gunarta), even a tombstone!

Ugly? I don't think so. My only advice is this, and I do mention this a lot to people: A lot of the images that accompany the unicode characters are incorrect—when they added them they misnamed them; an example is Latin Oi (Latin extended-B), which is actually Gh. The characters listed with the cedilla are another example—not S and T, mind you, but, G, K, L, N, and R. These should have commas, like your lowercase g does. —Love the interrobang. Also, there are a ton of deprecated characters that people tend to add, like the number glyphs in Latin Extended-B. The uppercase versions of the swash s and z, by the way, are in Latin Extended-C. I rather like this overall, except for my one pet pieve: I dislike the capital J being the same height as the rest of the capitals. The original J is literally an I with a palatal hook (tail) added to it. Whoever decided to design it with a baseline hook . . . ? >_< Lol. Anyway, good font. :)

The Ruble sign looks like "₽" and its unicode is U+20BD.

It doesn't look like the actual Ruble sign in this font but it looks like the Cyrillic letter Р (R in the English Alphabet) with a line through it.

So why did you put "the not yet Unicode encoded Ruble sign" in your notes? It is Unicode encoded.
