Subject Re: New FFN & Fontable classes

I think your English is very good and articulate. The only thing I noticed
about your English was the use of the word "doubt". When you first started
emailing the list I misunderstood your meaning on one occassion. In the USA,
the word "doubt" is usually associated with personal negative feelings
towards the subject of the sentence. For example, "I have serious doubts
about JavaServerFaces being a good technology". and  "I doubt that it is
possible"
