Are these really Microsoft fonts or are might these be Monotype
designs redistributed by MS?  In the latter case, I'd use the `m'
supplier letter for Monotype, as usual.

As for a new supplier letters, we seem to be running out of free
codes.  What remains are just the letters 'j', 'q', 'v', 'x' 'y'.

BTW, on a similar topic:  What about a supplier letter for Berthold?
Would it be OK to reuse `r' (whose original meaning as a prefix for
raw font is considered obsolete)?
