Dear Ulrike,


psfonts.map contains lines such as
md-grbb7m GFSBodoni-Bold " AutoEnc_2rwgawua6ejo6lcmev7rxg6fvb ReEncodeFont " <[a_2rwgaw.enc <<GFSBodoniBold.otf

AFAIK dvips cannot download open type fonts.
Thus the lines like above may not be intended
to use by dvips.
There is LCDF type tools to help in such cases.

IMHO latex+dvipdfmx supports native open type fonts
in map files. This fact has been used in
Japanese type setting, e.g.,
rml   H   KozMinPr6N-Regular.otf

Can other cases use open type fonts in map files directly?
