I was indeed pulling his leg, but I also knew that he would actually go off
and do it. He's that personality type.
By the way, on the subject of copyright, the design is pretty much useless
if it is copyrighted, so if William wants anyone to use his design he
should make a formal declaration of deposit in the public domain. I'm
afraid, if he is hoping that people might pay him a license fee, he's out
of luck. Even if his design were the most excellent .notdef glyph possible,
every type designer would still presume that he or she could design a
better one, especially if using William's required them to pay.
