Re: partial downloading with dvips

Hi Werner,

The short answer is "I don't know!".

That may sound flippant, but the problem is that the subsetting code
(t1part.c) is very senstive to overly long comments, etc... that
reside in the fonts, and there were some minor bugs in early versions
on dvips 5.86.  I did a fair amount os scrutinizing, and gave up on
some of the problems (because it would require a *very* robust PS
tokenizer to fix the problem sin t1part.c). Han The Thanh's writet1.c
is now used for font subsetting, and is more robust than t1part.c.

I suspect that the font you are having problems with was generated in
Fontographer.  If so, use the t1utils tools to disassemble the font,
clean out the crufty comments in the eexec portion, and add the line:

0 1 255 {1 index exch /.notdef put} for

immediately after the /Encoding 256 array line.

Then reassemble the font and try again.

If you still have problems, let me know.



P.S.  I am forwarding this to the tex-k mailing list, because there are
others there that might find this useful.
