find no cork.enc
So, I agree, it can be removed.
I'll take your word for it. I removed cork.enc from fontname
(http://tug.org/fontname) and TL.
I have also added ec.enc to fontname (for now, unchanged from what was
in TL 2007).
Those changes will propagate through CTAN within a couple of days.
How we correct ~600 fonts that have anavailable tcaron glyph in the
If changes need to be made to font distributions, the respective
maintainers should be contacted. If I understand you, though, changing
ec.enc will "silently" improve the situation with no changes needed from
the font maintainers (good news for everyone).
en.enc -> ec-old.enc
cork.enc -> cork-old.enc
Names like *-old.enc are always a mistake. We could rename it to
something like ectquoteright.enc.
I have asked Jacko for input regarding the glyph name changes. He has
spent more of his life dealing with this madness than anyone else I know,
so I don't want to make changes in this area without him reviewing it.
