Hi Hsing-yen,

Pardon again the long delay.

I don't know what to make of this report, frankly. I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Are you complaining about the letter v-hook U+028B?
I suppose it is objectionable that it is simply an upsilon now.

But v with hook is not really a Latin letter... it is going to look different from any Latin letter. And it isn't clear to me what v-hook has to do with Greek letters -- the Wikipedia article says it's based on an italic form of v.

Or are you complaining about Greek letters?

What letter do you mean by Yot? iota U+03B9?

The basic Greek range was incorporated as a whole. It is not my design. I am not qualified to judge the quality of the letter forms.

Hi Steve,

I found there is a small conflict for Greek Kappa and Latin V with hook in FreeSerif. First, the shape of stroke begining of lowercase Kappa seems sightly different from Yot. Second, lowercase V with hook also have different stroke begining from some latin letters as b, h, m, n, which seems like Greek rather than Latin letter.

I think they should adjust their stroke begining to make balance. As my imagination, the stroke begining of lowercase Kappa should following Yot, the stroke begining of V with hook should also adjusting as it.
