Very successful : merci bien, François ! I had bever used
PPM before, but it seems a useful tool.
I had to change line 37 to read
my @fontpaths = ("K:/WINXPPRO/Fonts");
(it doesn't like the same line with Windows-direction slashes)
but with that done, and using the example from your initial
message, I received the following :
