Roger Herz-Fischler Dept. of Mathematics, Carleton University Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K1S 5B6 e-mail: rhfischl@math.carleton.ca.; telecopier: (613) 788-3536 tel: (613) 788- 2144; mathematics office: (613) 788-2155 To: "tex-fonts@math.utah.edu After much searching I came about the vast treasure house at //web.rge.com/pub/tex/fonts I am unable to tell either by going up or down in the directories who was kind to put all these files, but I wish to thank them. I have already down loaded the long elusive ccr files and have printed a class text from them. However for a research book [The Shape of the Great Pyramid] I was looking for something more "traditional" as the editor thought that cm was too "thin". I then noticed /tex/fonts/psfonts/adobe/times Unfortunately I do not understand the system of denoting adobe fonts eg. ptmb8c vs ptmb8r vs ptmb8t vs ptmbc8t etc. I looked at: /wwwmaths.anu.edu/au/services/fontname which enabled me to determine that tm = times and I surmised that the prefix "p" stood for postscript, but again it did not help with the above problem. Is there a site or source where I can find out what the symbols mean. With many thanks, Roger Herz-Fischler
