Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for making a new version.

The fonts which I used are freely available fonts. You can download  
them from here.
In the middle of that page, you can see "OTF fonts for Mac OS X".

Yesterday, I can get a pdf file using xdv2pdf, but now I got an error,

sh: line 1: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/ 
xdv2pdf_mergemarks: Permission denied
*** failed to run xdv2pdf_mergemarks: status = 32256

However, for the fonts which are originally installed with OS X, it  
worked perfectly.
Only problem is the "#" at the beginning of the font name.
The previous version accepted "\font\A = "#fontname" at 12pt", but  
not in the new version.
Was it an accident or my wrong memory?

Anyway, thank you for your effort again.

Best regards,
