I want to use lcdf-typetools' (http://www.lcdf.org/~eddietwo/type/)
otftotfm together with fontinst to install Adobe's Minion Pro on my TeX
distribution. Unfortunately, the programs seem to have different
understandings of what constitutes a correct pl file.
(a) otftotfm sets DESIGNUNITS to 1000, while fontinst seems to expect it
to be 1. (Is that correct?) This leads to the following error message:
! PL-to-MTX error:
Nondefault unit used in PL file.
(b) fontinst can not deal with some of the numerical values emitted by
otftotfm; it seems to always expect a dotted decimal, even if there are
only zeros on the right hand side of the dot (eg, 1.00 instead of 1):
! Paragraph ended before \pl_rounded_real was complete.
I have never studied the spec for the pl format, but it would be
interesting of course to reach a common ground on these issues. Do you
have any opinions on this?
