Re: ps2pk vs. gsftopk

    Will they be SWA (set width adobe)?

Right. This is true of all the fonts URW has contributed, I believe.

    Also, the status of the acrobat reader fonts is not clear to me: if you
    install it under any flavour of unix you get
    Times/Helvetica/Courier/ZapfDingbats  in pfa format: as they 
    are meant to preview documents, why shouldn't you be
    allowed to install them in X or gs or the TeX utilities?

It depends on the exact terms of the license you accepted with acrobat.
In any case, it's a moot point. The URW fonts include all of the above.

    Does free for `P.D' also mean free for other people?

Yes. Peter tells me URW gave permission to distribute the fonts under
both the GPL and the Aladdin PUBLIC license.
