Hi again.

I have now checked some more.  "blacker, 0" appears to be the correct value.
If you compare a ecrm1000 pk font generated with the prores mode I submitted
with cmr10 type1 font on the hp4000 you will see that they are visualy
identical, as they are supposed to be to the best of my knowledge.

The ecrm1000 prores mode already in modes.mf produces significantly bolder
glyphs than the cmr10 type1 font.

If you would please print and compare
http://www.uio.no/~nil/testfont-ljfzzz.ps (blacker, 2) and
http://www.uio.no/~nil/testfont-ljfzzzjanl.ps (blacker, 0)

Also, a pk font (say cmr10) generated with "blacker, 0" is identical in
apperance to the same type1 font while the "blacker, 2" pk font is, as
in the ec example too bold.

All this is, of course, assuming that the bsr type1 fonts produce the
correct output...
