Feature: ornm - Ornaments

This is a dual-function feature, which uses two input methods to give the user access to ornament glyphs (e.g. fleurons, dingbats and border elements) in the font. One method replaces the bullet character with a selection from the full set of available ornaments; the other replaces specific “lower ASCII” characters with ornaments assigned to them. The first approach supports the general or browsing user; the second supports the power user.

Example: The user inputs zwzwzwzwzwzwzwzwy to form the top of a flourished box in Baroque Borders A, or inputs the bullet character, then chooses the thistle dingbat.
