.fd file names from fontinst

The naming of .fd files is a subject of much debate...
The .fd files on CTAN use the ISO 9660 file format, so they can be put
on CD-ROMs which run on pretty much anything. ISO 9660 mandates
lower-case-only 8+3 filenames.
Fontinst itself generates mixed-case names.

| Do most people use Tex on systems that are case-insensitive?
[ Sebastian Rahtz
| many people do. its called Windows, by a software company in the USA
there's another American software company called Apple that maintains a
case-insensitive operating system that is popular in some academic
institutions. it's called MacOS.
then there's VMS, also case-insensitive. in fact, only Unix as far as I
know _is_ case-sensitive.
