i think we are talking about AFM to TFM conversion, actually, to be
honest. thats what started this thread, me asking people to comment on
my new set of TFM/VF files for the 35 LW fonts.

who cares (much) about preview? thats not the product. what i want is
paper, or PDF (ie more or less full PostScript), or SGML. Much as I
respect ATM, and your excellent previewer that uses it I am
looking forward to using it seriously when my new computer arrives), I
think it is the tail wagging the dog. I can't imagine going back to the
bad old days before my pages were described in PostScript, thanks.
