Dear list members,

after struggling in vain with vfinst, recipes in Alan Hoenig's book
and fontinst yesterday I succeeded in installing my URW Garamond fonts
with oldstyle figures and expert fonts by investigating in the list
archives and piecing and patching up a fontinst install file from
postings by Lars Hellstr÷m, Rolf Marvin B°e Lindgren and others.

There is only one thing which is missing to my full happiness: the
digits in the italic font don't have an oldstyle type (no italic
small caps at all), so when I want to italicize some numerals, they
are entirely absent in the output.

I hope someone can look at my install file and give me a hint how I
can get to the ordinary italic figures. Here it is:

\input fontinst.sty




  \input csc2x



Hoping for help,
