The g1 attribute specifies a list of glyph names which identify a set of possible first glyphs in the kerning pair.

All glyphs with the given glyph name are included in the set. The total set of possible first glyphs in the kerning pair is the union of glyphs specified by the u1 and g1 attributes.

Two elements are using this attribute: <hkern> and <vkern>
