Re: missing AFMs for Blue Sky CM/PS fonts

Please note that other (non-TeX) programs that use PostScript font DO
need the .afm files; examples are my lptops (text -> PostScript)
utility, Adobe's Transcript package, graphics software that supports
PostScript fonts, and anything else that needs character metrics.

The .pfa/.pfb files contain neither metrics, nor kerning information,
and in any event, are much more complex to parse than .afm file ares

I'm therefore pleased by Barry Smith's report that the BaKoMa .afm
files can be used with the Blue Sky CM/PS fonts.
