This is interesting. On my Mac I have a number of fonts that support  
this character.
Fonts that do not have the long leg:

Aboriginal Sans, Aboriginal Serif, Arial, Arial Unicode MS,  
Baskerville, Courier, Courier New, Deja Vu Sans Mono, Gentium,  
Helvetica, Lucide Grande, Lucida Sans Unicode, MS Gothic, MS Mincho,  
MS PGothic, MS PMincho, Microsoft Sans Serif, Monaco, Tahoma, Times  
New Roman

Fonts that *do* have the long leg:

Allatuq, Anawrahta, Doulos SIL, Evertimes

Everson Mono version 5.2.0 has been uploaded. It has 6,399 glyphs.  
Unfortunately I am stuck with this until I get a new version of  
FontLab without the 6,400 glyph limit.
