Subject: How increase font tracking in MikTeX/teTeX


In Macintosh we are using Textures for typesetting TeX/LaTeX projects. In 
this platform there are two ways to increase the tracking (letter space) of 
any fonts, one is `\font\tim=Times[track+200]' and the other is through 
`Edmetrics'. We are using the first method, because that is very user friendly.

But our problem is, when we typeset any projects in Unix (teTeX) or in PC 
(MikTeX), how can we increase the tracking of any fonts. We don't want to 
use any packages for it like letterspace. There is no any option with 
`afm2tfm' also.

Thank you for your help in advance
