Well, you could try to run tftopl, a convertor from TFM to an easier readable (TeX) Property List file. You could also look into the AFM (Adobe Font Metrics) file (or the AFT file, whatever it is). Then you'll see the clear names of the font's glyphs and their encoding.

When you check whether pdfTeX's MAP file (/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts.map or /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts.map) contains the TeX font name lmex10, then you'll find this:

	lmex10 LMMathExtension10-Regular " enclmmathex ReEncodeFont " <lm-mathex.enc <lmex10.pfb

This tells you that the encoding recorded in the file lm-mathex.enc transforms the font file's (lmex10.pfb) "natural" font encoding (as recorded in the AFM file) to the font encoding TeX uses.

There is no connection from the manifold of font encodings TeX uses to Unicode. If you'll find some, it might just be chance. (A different thing is *text* or input encoding.)



Competition is the great erode of profits.
