Re: Future of the `Karl Berry Font Naming Scheme'...

The poing of the fontname scheme is surely its *predictability*, never
mind the 8+3 thing. What I want (and Melissa wants, I am sure) is an algorithm
for generating unique metric names, which can be mapped to NFSS or
whatever. Who cares what comes out? I don't write or read font names, a
program does that for me.

While it would be nice if NFSS abbreviations were the same as Berry
ones, its not the end of the world. At least now i think one *can* map
them ( I went throygh the same hoops as Melissa about 18 months ago
when preparing a Minion MM setup)
