I have seen that Microsoft fonts have t_comma_below instead of t_cedilla,
but they are still call it t_cedilla. Those are not good fonts, I try to
don't use them. It is not fair to have a glyps in a place of another.
Only Lucida typewriter from M$ contain the s and t comma_below (at
the end, after all glyps).
There are Romanian fonts (one is Ciula) which has a_breve instead
of q, s_comma_below instead of w and i_circumflex instead of k.
Just to make Romanian to comply to iso-8859-1.

Thank you. That is the old page. The new one is
"http://httpd.chello.nl/s.ciobica/page.html";, but
is not too different.

Thank you for your help.
