I've done this previously (I have modified Tamsyn's 15pt version
and released it on the arch forums as 'Tamsyn2') and it works
very well - particularly in locales where you rarely use anything
outside of the ASCII charset. The basic idea is this - find a font
you like and change the characters you don't use in said font to
be small glyphs. (Gbdfed and Xmbdfed work well for this - just
convert the font to bdf and open the font in either editor. When
you're done, you can convert it back if you like). The glyphs you
made are now represented as the character you replaced in the
font and can be referenced as such. I've attached the current
version of Tamsyn2 for reference or your use.
