Hmph -- guess I should keep quiet! ;)

Or at least should have checked somewhere first, not being an expert  
on such things. A search on fonts.com or similar quickly reveals a  
variety of shapes. I was just thinking of the single face that was  
built in to the early LaserWriters, etc., but that's far from the  
whole story.

I notice that chancery.sty in psnfss (and the associated *pzc.fd  
files) maps everything to the Medium Italic face, though.
