Partial downloading Adobe's Eurofonts?
I've come across this problem: when using dvips with the -j option to
partially download founts, I get the following message (or similar) when
the document includes any of Adobe's Eurofonts:
This is dvips 5.70 Copyright 1997 Radical Eye Software (www.radicaleye.com)
Input file: tmptmp.dvi
Options: -M0 -T210mm,297mm -j
' TeX output 1998.10.06:0323' -> tmptmp.ps
File <EuroSerReg> ended before all chars have been found.
We scan -212 Chars from 226
Last seen token was '/Euro'
Considering the chance that the Eurofonts have somehow been corrupted, I
downloaded all of them again, and I still get the same message. The
problem was pointed out to me by a Windows/Unix user (don't know which) who
also gets the same message. He emailed me one of the founts concerned,
and when converted (using CMacTeX's pfb2pfa and pfa2lwfn) to LWFN format,
this fount is byte-for-byte identical to the LWFN version I downloaded from
Adobe. I suspect that this means Adobe has built the founts with a bug.
 In case you're wondering, he's been trying out beta versions of my
eurofont package. I don't know whether this makes him kind, mad, or
 Release date: real soon now.
 No, really.
