First thing I need you to do. I need you to come up with a writeTo function
in FontTable. You also need a toByteArray function in Ffn. The rule of thumb
is if its a top level data structure it should have a writeTo function and
if its contained in another data structure it should have toByteArray

Once you've done this, write unit tests. They are very simple. Almost every
IDE has a wizard to create a unit test for you. You create two classes one
called TestFontTable and one called TestFfn. Go to http://junit.org to get
all the details on unit tests. Once you feel like you understand unit test
let me know and I will tell you how I want these classes tested.

I expect to hear from you in a day or two.
