      Sarmendili!

      As of today, the fonts Tengwar Eldamar v.1 and Sarati Eldamar v.2 are
      available for downloading from Amanye Tenceli.

      Tengwar Eldamar is, transparently, a Tengwar font that follows the
      style of the earlier released fonts Sarati Eldamar and Valmaric
      Eldamar. It makes use of the same keyboard layout as Tengwar Parmaite
      and Tengwar Annatar, and includes an Alt font with a large number of
      alternate letter-forms.

      Sarati Eldamar version 2 is a greatly improved version of the font
      family. Every glyph of the original fonts has been more or less
      adjusted for greater consistency and faithfulness to the source
      documents. A few alternate forms and a number of ligatures have been
      added. The letter-spacing has also been improved(*).

      Both fonts are now also available in PostScript Type 1 format. As
      always, comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

      (*) In Sarati Eldamar version 1, the character widths were adjusted so
      that diacritics would look as good as possible over and beneath all
      characters, but that approach made the letter-spacing inconsistent. In
      version 2 the sarati are spaced consistently, but at the expense of
      the positioning of diacritics around wide sarati. This problem can
      however be solved by kerning, and will hopefully disappear in a
      future, OpenType version of Sarati Eldamar.
