Re: Request for experience, MM fonts and LaTeX... (esp. Kepler)

There was an article (in french sorry) by Thierry Bouche in Les Cahiers de
GUTenberg describing how to install MM fonts for TeX (the example was
MinionMM). To create instance of the font the authour used ATM on Windows 
then ghostscript to get the afm and finally merges the metrics from 
ghostscript with the kerning pairs from the .PFM file. It's quite 
cumbersome but I think that it should work with Kepler.

gsftopk handle gracefully MM fonts.
