[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#648958: fonts-mph-2b-damase: s/ubstition/ubstitution/
The package description has a minor typo in the second paragraph:
"substition". That's the oppostite of superstition, right?
That was what caught my eye, but the claim that version 4.1 is "the
latest version of unicode" also needs fixing (6.0 came out last year),
and I've trimmed some of the redundant weaselling about the list of
scripts covered not being exhaustive.
