* Hello.\par

So there are idiosyncrasies with plain-letter named fonts.

What happens when you say "\font A=CMR10"  (note: no slash before "A").  Do you have any idea of which iteration of TeX David was writing, since TeX82 would require "\font \A=CMR10" whilst TeX78 would have required (as David himself notes) "\:A=CMR10".  BNB cc'd as she may know the answer.
