RE: Off-Topic: Overriding

We have been using FontLab Studio 5.2 for glyph work and then Volt 1.3.264 for the OT rulings.
They work ok for us, however the combination somehow has allowed the font to grow too large and we are currently trying to trim it down in size.

Kamal, what do you use for your platform?

We are using VOLT to manage substitution rules. Because, the generated fonts using fontforge or fontlab couldn't be properly rendered on Microsoft Office suite at typing. (tested Office 2007) But works on other writing software such as OpenOffice, and/or other Unicode supported editors.
I don't know, how it was for other font developers. Please comment.

BTW: If exist, I will try to find some rules from our svn history.
