I strongly disagree. Making fonts is really work for experts.
And I am sure it takes longer to master a font editor like
fontforge and to make a complete quality font than to learn
some basic LaTeX and use the excellent work others did before.

That's the sad thing. Everyone seems to think that learning
to do things differently (or making others learn it) is
impossible. I think ALL linguists and students could use LaTeX
or any other free software they want. But sadly they don't want it.

I don't believe in your "different" brain, I think it's a
weak excuse.
