Today in one of my classes, someone did a demo of language learning 
resources and started by looking at the resources listed on SIL's 
homepage.  I noticed in the "what's new" section that they finally 
released the Unicode/OpenType version of Ezra today: 

Have a look, try it out, let me know if it's better than Cardo.  My 
initial suspicion would be that it is, just from knowing how long they've 
been working on it.  I can track down someone to ask for permission to 
distribute, but I suspect there will be no problem given their licensing 

SIL also released a new version of a nice transcoding utility to convert 
between different character encodings, which those of you venturing into 
module making might find useful.  See: http://www.sil.org/nrsi/teckit/
