#Font subsets IV

After installing #Fontforge, I still have to use it for real. The problem I want to solve is to reduce an existing font in size and reduce its use to only one script.

There are many fonts around that include everything and the kitchen sink too. When the only thing that is needed is a specific font for use on a specific webpage, it does not make sense to send the excess bulk as well.

Fontforge as a tool is intended to build fonts. My intention of reducing a font in size is a use case that seems not to be what the tool is there for. I do not know the tool really so I am looking for help. The ultimate goal is to have efficient web fonts for every script.
Thanks,
