Re: AFMs for Blue Sky CM/PS fonts...
There are ,,official`` afm files for the cm fonts made by Pierre MacKay
using gf2afm on CTAN://fonts/cm/afm.
Pierre MacKay has invested some work to render all cm font dimensions in
an afm file.
>From the README:
These Computer Modern afm files are made up by way of a METAFONT
compilation, and so represent Knuth's designs exactly. I have
included everything but cmff10 cmfi10 cmfib10 and cminch. You have to
draw the line somewhere.
No information that can be preserved is discarded. I have invented names
for fontdimens that afm does not know about. [...]
These are *not* the official AFM files for the BSR CM fonts.
For a start, they have rounded advance widths and no ligatures links.
Please be patient. Let AMS decide when and how to deal with this.
