Hello all,

On page C260, in the `line' after line 3 (mfbook.mf l. 14005--14009), 
the font_* commands are defined to have sharped dimensions 
(`<numeric#>') assigned to them. While this is correct for most of them, 
the value passed to font_slant should be the slant or tilt ratio of the 
font and therefore not a sharped dimension. In the example on pp. 
C335--C336, a value of 1/6 is used.

I also checked the use of the font_* commands in the Computer Modern 
source files. Sharped dimensions are used for all font_* commands except 
font_slant, to which values like .25 or 1/6 are passed.

Page C260, the `line' after line 3 is already in the errata, but all of 
the font_* commands, including font_slant, are still defined with 

Best regards,
