Wondering if (a) you are allowed to take some TrueType font with this license (actually I am pretty sure now that it is allowed, modification even for commercial purposes):
SIL Open Font License 1.1
The Open Font License (OFL) is maintained by SIL International. It attempts to be a compromise between the values of the free software and typeface design communities. It is used for almost all open source font projects, including those by Adobe, Google and Mozilla.
and (b) can somehow select out a subset of the glyphs using some font tool, and then (c) re-exporting the font to TrueType or some other format like OpenType.
That is, I would like to take this font and select only a few glyphs for use on the web (out of the hundreds or thousands available), so that it can minimize the size of the font download on the web. An example would be emoji fonts, I would maybe use 5 or 10 of the emojis for a particular use case, out of the thousands that are out there. So I would want a font with just the 5 or 10 emojis in it.
Wondering if this is possible, and what is a good tool one might use to accomplish this. I am on a Mac.
