Re: fontname postfixes
I can't seem to find the rule for fontname postfix building:
It's not a postfix. It's just multiple variants or variant/width stuff.
The multiple variants are listed in arbitrary (but alphabetical in my
lists) order. This is in the manual.
*8r is font encoded with 8r.enc.
*8rn is ... ?
It depends on what comes before the 8r. If it's just the supplier and
typeface, then these have to interpreted as variants, and then
n=informal, c=smallcaps, p=ornaments.
If phvr8rn is Helvetica-Narrow encoded with 8r.enc, what is the name
of the raw Helvetica-Narrow font
phvrrn, in what I believe is your meaning of the word `raw'.
(as in ptmr is the raw name of Times- Roman?).
I assume you mean `raw' in the sense of using the default afm2tfm
output encoding, rather than in the Tom R's original sense of
no-kerns-or-ligatures. (A misfeature that I hope has been entirely
eradicated by now.) The name of the latter would be rptmr for Times and
rphvrrn for the former. Don't use them, ever :).
