I am not a fontinst guru -- but it seems that the \latinfamily script 
can obviously only deal with the three-letter standard names. If you 
want to use »zpshans« you must use the basic fontinst commands. 
(Please don't beat if I am wrong)

However, in my K. Berry font name manual (June 2001) I found »se« for 
the Shelley family. So the names should start with »pse«.

Kind regards
