[Fontinst] Alternate Help Req.
Wed, 18 Dec 2002 21:00:09 +1100
Sorry to be learning publicly like this, but I realised that Alan H.
intends that one name the raw alternate afm files padr8l and padri8l.
On the assumption that that is so, I renamed the files. Now fontinst
chokes on a definition in the ot1padl.etx file. Here it is below.
I can't see what is wrong here
