    Is this the font[1][2] by Paul Nelson of Microsoft Typography, John
    Hudson of Tiro Typeworks and Mamoun Sakkal of Sakkal Design[3]?

    To be more precise, this is an OpenType font that uses features of
    OpenType[4] that older versions of Uniscribe do not support. The font
    is not specific to Uniscribe; any OpenType renderer that implements
    the features used will work correctly.
