A typo. I meant `FC' fonts.
But now, I don't exactly see that there's anything to do. Yes, fc*.tfm
have parens in the coding schemes. But that is not disallowed in tfm's,
as far as I can see. It is only disallowed in pl's. And tftopl changes
() in the bcpl strings to /. So it seems like all the programs are
doing the right thing?
I certainly agree it would be better if the original tfm's did not
contain parens, but that is not up to me. (If Jorg agrees but doesn't
have time, I don't mind making the actual changes and re-uploading to
CTAN, but I don't want to change the tfm's just in TL.)
