Now that colour font technology is well-established, some readers might 
find the thread that I started on Monday 24 June 2002 in the Unicode 
mail list archives of historical interest.

Please note that my email address used at that time is not one that I 
use now.

I tried to work out ways to encode colour font technology at various 
times over about the next decade.

So  when I saw the solution that Microsoft produced I was very impressed 
by the elegant and straightforward way that the people at Microsoft 
encoded colour fonts, as that elegant way to achieve the result had not 
occurred to me.
