It seems that I am the only one who uses (also only very rarely) the 8r-
encoded fonts for typesetting. Is the claim is still valid, that they
provide a ligful set of metrics for installations that don't support virtual
fonts? In the psnfss-beta distribution (and in the official one on CTAN 
since January 96) the 8r-encoded fonts for the standard 35 contain no 
ligatures. (Strange, because it seems that they are essentially build by a 
\latinfamily command.) Only ptmr's tested.

I get checksum complaints from xdvi when using ptmr7t/8t. I deleted all
old pk's and renamed the old tfm's and vf's -- but I might have missed
something in the first quick test.

Nice to see some dotlessj files in the tools directory. How do I use them? 
The 7t/8t/8r/8c metrics don't seem to contain a dotlessj.
