Hello Folks,

Here's another version of the Bordered Characters project. Changes for this
version include significantly improved parsing speed for almost all scenes,
elimination of an unnecessary user setting, improvements to the upper-case "I"
and "J," improved kerning for normal-to-italic and italic-to-normal transitions,
fixed the bug that prevented reduced stroke widths from being compatible with
the scaled micro-justification method (bone-head move on my part), added a
workaround to the problem of some character widths being re-computed incorrectly
after stroke width reduction, and the addition of a new feature to match the
width of a Paragraph object with another scene element (probably another
Paragraph object). There are also some minor improvements to the sample scenes.

I've been having a lot of fun making bumper sticker designs with the bordered
characters. With a little effort I can always get the results I want.

Regards,
Dave Blandston

It is on my todo list to play with this. I'm looking forward to it.

The next version (1.6) will have a font variation that's particularly suited to
animations. It will be #28. It allows the interior of the characters to be
filled with any object, so the interior object can be animated.
