question about adobe Cyrillic fonts.


the file adobe.map recommends names font names with `z' encoding for
adobe Cyrillic fonts, e.g. it contains a line:

pttrz     TimesTenCyr-Upright               A    354    ttyu____

(there are 21 such lines for Cyrillic fonts in adobe.map). but
actually, the encoding in those fonts matches the windows encoding,
which has a name `6w'. So, should the adobe.map be corrected?
(pttrz -> pttr6w, etc).

Also, there is an `LCY' Cyrillic font encoding which is not yet
registered in the fontname scheme. We suggest the name `6y'. This
encoding is defined in LaTeX Cyrillic bundle, and also in the T2
package (ctan:macros/latex/contrib/supported/t2/cyrfinst/lcy.etx).
It is close to the MS-DOS encoding (6d), but is not the same.
