What exactly would that mean? Condensed, Extended, Semi Condensed etc. 
need there own fd files? That shouldn't be a problem now that things 
are typed in. Is Myriad the only font really affected by this? My 
concern is on naming. How should I name these to fit in with the Berry 
scheme and indicate OpenType, Unicode, and Pro vs. Std?

The hardest part about this was figuring out which features each font 
supports. Should there be versions with Stylistic Alternates and Swash 
Capitals as well as versions without? I just made the decision to use 
Stylistic Alternates and Swash in Italics if they were available. I 
also decided to use Oldstyle figures in any small caps face. There is 
probably a design guide for such things that I should have followed.
