MF for old English available from ymir.claremont.edu
Julian Bradfield's old English files are now available from
ymir.claremont.edu in [anonymous.tex.mf.cm.oe]. The readme file
This directory contains programs for Old English letters.
The fonts created have:
D capital eth
T capital thorn
G capital yogh
n Polish ogonek accent
The thorn is the style that looks like p and b combined. The roman derived
fonts (i.e. not cmoeti10) also have
u lower-case thorn with side bowl pointing top right (the traditional shape;
I happen to think that the other shape blends better with CM); this code
is Knuth's, from the cmman font.
To make the fonts, just run Metafont on cmoer10 etc; other sizes and styles
can be make by adapting the CM parameter and driver files in the obvious way.
