I haven't played with hinting at all so far, because I'm more than

Btw, here's a nice introduction to hinting process, where FontLab is
used (it seems to be pretty expensive, and available demo doesn't seem
able to save or export fonts, at least that's what the web site seems
to say). Still, I think it's usable for any beginners such as you or me:
I'm personally not planning to do anything with hints for now. An
additional concern is that whatever we do we should probably at least
try to keep the existing true type instructions, unless we are sure we
can do better than bitstream did. This probably means figuring out what
their instructions exactly do unless they provide documentation.
