Re: TrueType & Fontname
f there were to be a new fontname scheme for TeX, then I would
recommend basing it on something inherent in the font - not
invented. In the case of Type 1 fonts this could be the PS FontName
(not Full Name or Family Name) - plus encoding.
Fonts have been available under their PostScript names (from the *.map
files) for years now. No one I know of uses those names, though.
I agree (and agreed from the beginning) that 8 characters is
insufficient. Anything that can be done would be good :).
I really am not the one to drive this any more. Anyone else (Lars,
Werner, Vladimir, ...) will be more qualified and have more need to work
it out :).
