Notes from NewCon 5 (#1)

When making name badges, make sure your badge typeface uses the same character set as your membership database. Look for at least one name in your database that has unusual characters such as Siân, and make sure it's not coming out looking like Sifn. It's easy to forget to do this at a British or American based convention, since most of your names won't show the problem.

ETA: Note - this is a mistake I have also made. The first run of Discworld 2010 name badges included a handful with really odd characters in.
