So true. Recently it took me more than 2 weeks to draw a set of Lao numerals. They’re weird shapes but I’m glad I took the time to make them nice.

I have spent a lot of time chatting to cis people about what it's really like to be trans and the fact is that most people are, unfortunately, entirely ignorant of how hard it is to be trans in the UK. So here is a thread of things you probably ought to know:

Always this tiring lack of diversity in the management teams.

I know what you mean, but I also think companies have a responsibility to reach out to user communities and pay for their input. Many users are very far removed from being able to engage.

Does anyone know if CSS text-decoration-thickness is _supposed_ to apply to strikethrough? When this is set as 'from-font', it applies the _underline_ thickness to strikethrough. When it's _not_ 'from-font' it uses the value in the font.

Thank you! Though all but ḷha appear in my Sanskrit conjunct list, I think I should start a separate list for Pali. Are the v-shaped letters in vha and sva in the final column just insertions where the printing failed?

Good question! Yes, the text should always stay in view. I'd have to see how it feels in different places, but how about scrolling the whole UI, or just the OT feature section?

If it's really larger than the screen, add a scrollbar?

I'm not sure if it's really a problem. Complex scripts can have a whole lot of features, and I'd say it's better to have them all instantly visible (and spaced enough for imprecise clicking) rather than think about collapsing anything
