Since the figures were generated by a completely different system, how
does it recognize the fonts? The font used is a postscript (type1) with
more than 256 chars (and about 20 reencoding vectors) in the figures.
I presume pdftex could sort of find the same signature in all the "font
programs" (adobe vocabulary), but how can it find a correspondance with
an existing one it its map files? Using fontids?
