Bitstream Vera fonts.

- The original look and feel of Vera fonts depend on hight of the glyph:
Ymax = 1901 
Ymin = -483 [-426]
DejaVu fonts with a wider range of characters is higher.
Czcionka Wanda (based on DejaVu fonts) corrected the hight but lost the look of some character accents.
- Width problem:
- Czcionka Wandzia (based on Vera fonts) have a hdmx table.
This table is supposed to contain precomputed widths for certain (common) pixel sizes.
FontForge does not suport hdmx table. Font Tools ttx do.
- Czcionka Wanda have no hdmx table.
- Ligature width problem:
- Czcionka Wandzia and Wandzia have no GSUB table.
This table is supposed to set a ligature fonts. FontForge adds this table, but for now ligatures work badly.
For example: fi and o look like fb
Font Tools ttx -x "GSUB" *.ttf cut down this table.
