Neat. Where do I get "ftinfo"?

See my other post- it's mainly up to the freetype library.
All swfc gets are the Unicode positions of the glyphs.

I'm currently looking into that umlaut problem- I don't think it's
font related though- all the "missing" characters are present in the
SWF, at the right encoding/Unicode positions. It's some quirk of
Flash edittext boxes...
