Hi all

Just an update on this: I tried pulling down the tfm files padr7t and 
padri7t from Ctan and converted them to .pl files. I fed these into 
fontinst's search path and in no longer indiates that those files are 
missing. But now it indicates that padr8l and padri8l are missing. The 
strange thing is that Alan H. does not mention these files until he 
gives the install file, so there is no indication where these files 
might come from. I'm mystified.

So---any advice still gratefully received.

Adrian H.
