Wow! If after a week or so of using (La)TeX you already produce such  
documentation, you'll be a real (La)TeX guru in no time!

By the way, the authors of the MinionPro package (something worth to  
take a look at):



recommend LCDF Typetools over fontforge since the former "are able to  
create the dotless j glyph. If you use other programs this glyph will  
be omitted".

LCDF Typetools version in gwTeX is 2.26. I installed version 2.36 in  
my ~/bin directory because with 2.26 you can't check which MinionPro  
version you have (something you need to install the package).

Best regards,
