Hi Nagy,

seems you got the width specification garbled while creating your .tfm
files: the +25 font runs too small, therefore the protruding hyphen does
not stick out.  See:

% g30.tfm is grailregular+30.tfm
% g25.tfm is grailregular+25.tfm
% g20.tfm is grailregular+20.tfm

\pdfmapline{+g30 "1.03 ExtendFont" <grailregular.pfa}
\pdfmapline{+g25 "1.025 ExtendFont" <grailregular.pfa}
\pdfmapline{+g20 "1.02 ExtendFont" <grailregular.pfa}

\font\aa g30 at 20pt
\font\bb g25 at 20pt
\font\cc g20 at 20pt


\aa Hello World GrailRegular

\bb Hello World GrailRegular

\cc Hello World GrailRegular


They should be in descending text width, but they aren't.

Regards, Hartmut
