I'd already implemented J"org's suggestion by the time I read this,
but I'm curious.  What does LY1 buy me over T1 & TS1, besides
not needing additional files?  I am using the Expert set fonts, so as
I understand it, I need vf's anyway.  

On another note, is there any convenient way to get access to the
other characters in the expert font?  (ie, not just ligatures and
osfs, but the superior and inferior digits, etc.)
