I thought I'd PM this to you as I'm not too sure about the legality of editing someone else's font. I'm sure it's not a jailable offence but I also guess it's not really allowed. Dunno.
Anyway, I have an edited version of the Ilshakefest font if you'd like it. I fixed the kerning issues, and the odd characters. If you seek out a thread for my map "Vaniya" you will be able to see it in action (although I forgot to change one of the original lower case S's on the right hand side so just ignore that. )
If you'd like it then just let me know and I'll mail it to you.
