what do you mean by "doesn't allow font reencoding.

I made a 8r encoded tfm with fontinst, and I use

W-P-8r   <<WarnockPro-Regular.otf 8r.enc

it works !

I even try to make a 8rsmallcaps.enc file, (a -> Asmall etc.) and it 
seems to work. Of course now I need a 8r.etx file for fontinst in order 
to get the good metrics.
