uwe> It shouldn't be so difficult to turn any TeX source of a "font
No, I mean something else entirely: a script that looks at the installed
TeX tree, finds all the zillions of tfm's, and *generates* a sampler,
showing the families installed, the encodings supported, the variants
supported, etc. For what is actually available in the *current*
wadams> Perhaps a better solution here would be to have a default
location for packages which install fonts?
1) Anything that requires infrastructure changes means it will only be
useful on a tiny fraction of installs. Few people install a new TeX.
2) My thought was to show actual fonts, not just package names.
"mathptmx" doesn't tell anyone what it is.
Anyway, just dreaming.
