    Is Microsoft Font Validator reliable? For example it returns a non-validation on Linotype Neue Haas Grotesk Display, even though font sizes match Myfonts spec.
    Then again some foundries (e.g. Font Bureau and Lineto in particular) put fake DSIGs in their fonts!

    I have to guess that the DSIG on Neue Haas Grotesk is invalid is because the fonts were not made at Linotype, but at Commercial Type by Christian Schwartz, and that the DSIGs were too expensive for him.
