Hello Steve,

I have found I made a mistake in comment #2, the three-legged Te should be redesign as turned Sha instead of reversed Sha, besed on glyph reference from Sha.

Hello Hsing-Yen,

The El with descender U+052E-F were just wrong in the normal face. I have fixed that, and added the letter to bold.

The other issues are all stylistic in nature. I will need pictorial information showing a tradition of printing these letters.

For now, the rest will be postponed.

The following letters in Cyrillic Extended-C should be improved:

The three-legged Te (U+1C85) looks sightly unreadble, this glyph should be removed, replaced by glyph refefence from Sha (U+0448) and reverse.
The Tall Yat (U+1C87) should looks taller than U+048D.
The Unblended Uk (U+1C88) looks like ѵ+o, the components should be a bit closer.

Hi Steve,

Several Cyrillic letters looks sightly inappreciate in FreeSerif, they should be improving.

U+048A, U+048B, U+04C5, U+04C6, U+04C9—U+04CE: their tail looks like sans-serif style rather than serif style, the end of tail should be sharper.
U+04C3: the “hook” looks ugly than Latin capital Eng.
U+052E, U+052F: they looks the same as U+0524, U+0525.
