Update web font Junicode to latest version
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Request: update the font Junicode used by Extension:UniversalLanguageSelector to the latest version 0.900

Justification:

On English Wikisource, the template https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Template:Insular relies on the UniversalLanguageSelector extension to use the Junicode font with the font feature ss02 to display text using insular glyphs.

There is a limitation where text does NOT use insular glyphs when combined with Unicode Character 'COMBINING DOT ABOVE' (U+0307) even when font feature ss02 is specified. For illustration, see https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Template:Insular#Limitations

I created a new feature request with Junicode to request that this limitation be removed. I was informed today that this limitation does not exist in the latest version 0.900. See the discussion at https://sourceforge.net/p/junicode/feature-requests/51/

Please update the font to the latest version or let me know what needs to be done in order to have the font updated. Thanks!

@beleg_tal There's an update, but it does seem that it is still using the Latin form even with v 1.002. I see this with the attached webfonts and with Junicode 1.002 installed locally.
