replaced with subcript of that corresponding letter.There will be  10
numbers  , 3 new symbols borrowd from existing  fonts and one set of 2
joined  namely th.  In total   26+26+10+3+1  = 66 characters only. I
will used that font when trasliterating languages.  It will only be in
italic and there is no capital version of character.  Now the question is can I
customize a given font to suit my purpose and give that particular font a name
and load it on my computer.If yes  is a  given font say, bookman the
property of someone and licensced and protected. If yes  is there a
generic one that i can use. Are the different fonts on a computer the
property of someone ?  Are there free fonts out there ?Is that
something easy to do ?  I would  appreciate any help.  Many thanks.

I did a Google on:  font editor package

It looks as if what you want is out there (I would have been
astonished if it were not).

Fonts are copyrighted, but my instinct is that if you already have
them and are not proposing to sell or distribute the 'compound font'
then nobody would care.
