MF for old English available from ymir.claremont.edu

Julian Bradfield's old English files are now available from
ymir.claremont.edu in [anonymous.tex.mf.cm.oe]. The readme file

This directory contains programs for Old English letters.

The fonts created have:
D  capital eth
d  eth
T  capital thorn
t  thorn
G  capital yogh
g  yogh
n  Polish ogonek accent

The thorn is the style that looks like p and b combined. The roman derived 
fonts (i.e. not cmoeti10) also have
u  lower-case thorn with side bowl pointing top right (the traditional shape;
   I happen to think that the other shape blends better with CM); this code
   is Knuth's, from the cmman font.

To make the fonts, just run Metafont on cmoer10 etc; other sizes and styles 
can be make by adapting the CM parameter and driver files in the obvious way.
