Well, looking at this it still doesn't explain to me the naming from
the following line in psnfss.map:
ptmrre8r Times-Roman " 1.2 ExtendFont TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc
I can break this down into:
p <- Adobe
tm <- Times Roman
r <- Regular roman
re8r <- Regular Engraved/Copperplate/Elite TeXBase1Encoding
... whereas I would have expected ptmr8re or ptmrr8re, i.e.
p <- Adobe or p <- Adobe
tm <- Times Roman tm <- Times Roman
r <- Regular roman r <- Regular roman
8r <- TeXBase1Encoding r8r <- Regular TeXBase1Encoding
e <- Expanded e <- Expanded
So, clearly there is something I'm not understanding here (or a mistake
has been made)...
