Attempting to compile Guido Herzog's "fancy border"
example (extract below), I am told by PdfLaTeX :

> !pdfTeX error: pdflatex.exe (file WebOMintsGD):
> Font WebOMintsGD at 1200 not found
>  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

I have WebomintsGD.tfm in H:\TeX\Live\2009\texmf\local\fonts, 
WebomintsGD.pfb in H:\TeX\Live\2009\texmf\local\fonts\type1\local,
uwebo.fd in H:\TeX\Live\2009\texmf\local\tex\latex\misc,

this entry

	WebOMintsGD WebOMintsGD <WebOMintsGD.pfb

in both copies of PdfTeX.map, I have asked TLMGR
to update the file name databases, and have now
run out of ideas :-(  What vital step(s) have
I overlooked, please ?

** Phil.
\documentclass {article}
\usepackage {umrand, xcolor}
\usepackage {times}

\font \w = WebOMintsGD at 20pt %% Type1-Font .

\begin {document}
\w whatever
