fontname scheme 1.4 available

I have released version 1.4 of ``my'' font naming scheme for TeX fonts.
You can get it by anonymous ftp from


I will also send it to you by email if you cannot ftp.

Please notice the `.z' instead `.Z' -- I am now using gzip instead of
compress.  See below for a blurb about gzip.

The fontname document is in Texinfo format, so you will need the TeX
macros in the file texinfo.tex (available with most GNU programs) to be
able to print it; the directory pub/tex/fontname on the above machine
has a texinfo.tex, as well as a number of other files with name lists.

The rest of that directory contains files showing the naming scheme
applied to Adobe, Monotype, Computer Modern, and other sources' fonts.

The changes since version 1.3 are minimal: a couple of additional
typefaces, variants, and sources.

I am happy to receive additions, criticisms, or other comments.

Information about gzip:

gzip is faster and compresses better than compress.  In addition to its
technical virtues, it is not subject (so far) to any (alleged) software
patents.  Here is an extract from the README file:

> gzip is free software, you can redistribute it and/or modify it under
> the terms of the GNU General Public License, a copy of which is
> provided under the name COPYING. The latest version of the gzip
> sources can always be found in prep.ai.mit.edu:/pub/gnu/gzip-*.tar*
> or any of the prep mirror sites. An MSDOS lha self-extracting exe is in
> hal.gnu.ai.mit.edu:/tmp/gzip*.exe.

Instead of prep, I suggest you get gzip from one of the following less
heavily loaded servers:
	Asia: ftp.cs.titech.ac.jp, utsun.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp:/ftpsync/prep,
	Australia: archie.oz.au:/gnu (archie.oz or archie.oz.au for ACSnet)
	Europe: src.doc.ic.ac.uk:/gnu, ftp.informatik.tu-muenchen.de,
	  ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de:/pub/gnu, nic.funet.fi:/pub/gnu,
	  ugle.unit.no, isy.liu.se, ftp.stacken.kth.se, ftp.win.tue.nl,
	  ftp.denet.dk, ftp.eunet.ch, nic.switch.ch:/mirror/gnu, 
	  archive.eu.net, irisa.irisa.fr:/pub/gnu
	United States: wuarchive.wustl.edu, ftp.cs.widener.edu,
	  uxc.cso.uiuc.edu, col.hp.com:/mirrors/gnu,
          gatekeeper.dec.com:/pub/GNU, ftp.uu.net:/systems/gnu
