Incidently, I find the 7d-encoding names for OsF rather misleading.  

If you look at the Adobe AFM files, all those OsF fonts come with a
full set of 228 glyphs, with the only difference of lining digits
being replaced by oldstyle.  According to the fontname scheme, you
might as well use the variant letter 'j', hence

  FontSC (& OsF)-> <fam><weight>c8a.afm
  FontOsF	-> <fam><weight>j8a.afm


Cheers, Ulrik.
