# Working with a Greek Truetype font.

I found a free classical Greek truetype font at:

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Help/Athenian_Font.html

What I want to do is use this with PDFTeX.  But here comes the problems.
How do I create a TFM file for the true type font.  Actually the problem is
how to I create a file that I can add the ligatures so that the font becomes
usable?

My first problem is what encoding am I supposed to use the ttf2afm?  I can
use no encoding (which sounds appropriate to me since it is more like a
symbol font than anything else).  But then aft2tfm does not like the
resulting afm file.  I was about ready to try fontinst, but again the
problem of what encoding to use.
