      Hate mail?

      I totally agree, I started learning tengwar when my best friend showed me
      how it works, for some reason I caught on very quickly. And ever since
      have been studying it I only got the font so I could make some tengwar
      without having to scan or recreate it in a graphics prog.

      Writing tengwar by hand is the best way, that is the only way to understand
      fully, to recognise the symbols and write them without a reference. Even
      my hand writing sucks, I enjoy writing tengwar. My friend and I even sat
      translating a coke can's text to tengwar for the fun.

      So all you new to tengwar. Get the symbols and start writing.

      (Henry ducks behind a desk awaiting incoming hate mail)

      I humbly take my leave.
