Hi Adrian

I am using LucidaBright fonts which I originally bought from YandY for
mac os 9 and then converted to unix form (pfb's ?). CMacTeX
has a  lwfn2pfb script.

I just tried these fonts  under 10.1.3 and
it all looks OK on preview in TeXShop.

I am not a font expert but if the original person wanted pfb's
and has pfa's couldn't they just use one of Tom Kiffe's tools?
His t1utils has a pfa2pfb option and the script in fact
uses that I think.

I found that there was a bit of messing about to
get the names of the fonts files right but it wasn't
too bad.  The abbrevations used by the mac os 9 lwfn fonts
didn't quite match the ones in pfb form.
