Hi Doug - thanks much for looking at the code.

    is it appropriate to be assigning the result of |search()| for a ".otf"
    font to a global variable labeled |tfmfile|?  

Yes, because it's not .otf, but .ofm (Omega Font Metric, the Omega
version of tfm files). This is of no practical consequence nowadays, but
we keep the code for compatibility.


I thought about that too. I guess I agree with you.
I'll change it at some point. --thanks, karl.
