Michael,

Your work around works, and everything is working perfectly now. Your TeXFontUtility made installing this stuff fairly painless. Slick! In fact, if anyone already has FontForge, X11, and Reader already installed, the whole process can be done in only a few minutes! I did not have  either FontForge or Reader installed. If there is some demand, I could write up the whole process that I went through.

I notice that you have support files available for the Adobe Mathematical Pi fonts. I have an old set of this in postscript type 1, consisting of six font files. Are your files at all useful for this? It would be nice to be able to use the old style script (not the fraktur script)  in one of those font files.
