Hi Karl,

thank you for your explanation. We are only the guys who had to write the
LaTeX-package. The decision to include georgia was not ours (and in fact we
warned the journal-people that this will have bad consequences since this
font is proprietary).

I will send your email to the guys who are responsible for the journal, but
I do not believe that they will change their mind.

If I understand your email correctly than our package would be included if
it does not use Window's georgia?

Regards, Andreas
