Hi All,
Few years ago, I have bought few fonts type 1 from Bitstream. Even,
if they are only type 1, they are sufficient for most of the documents
I have to write.

When I want to use them with all the TeX engines (pdflatex, lualatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf)
I get normal results. But when I try to use them with xelatex (and dvipdfmx), I get
the following error message and the accented characters are not displayed.

Error message:
** WARNING ** Obsolete four arguments of "endchar" will be used for Type 1 "seac" operator.

In attachement, you will find a short example allowing to reproduce the problem, with
few result (pdf files produced by the running of pdflatex, latex, xelatex, lualatex).

In the attachment, only, the commercial type 1 font is not provided. I will give it however if needed
to correct the problem, but I prefer not to distribute it too widely now.

regards,

rhino64
