sorry, I accidentally sent the mail too soon.

modern fonts are included in their own file, we may cut the huge
tex4ht-fonts-noncjk.tex into many smaller files.

>>   ht-fonts/unicode/adobe/courier/pcrrc7t.htf - monospace, small caps?
>>   ht-fonts/unicode/adobe/times/ptmrc7t.htf - regular + small caps
>>   ht-fonts/unicode/adobe/times/ptmri7t.htf - italic

it is only important that character codes corresponds, the styling
information is included in the light .htf files. But we may of cource
create new master .htf file using htfgen for some font, verify that
all characters are correct and then reference to it.

we can, this is what htfgen does, but we may get too many huge files
as the result. but sometimes it is nearly impossible to find usable
.enc files, for example I've tried to make fonts for `LGR` fontenc and
couldn't find anything usable, the HTML contained different characters
than the source file.
