Yes, it is my mistake, there is no need for modification of 8r.enc,
because all glyphs in the alt font are in the default encoding, as I
saw in the postscript file. There is no need to reencode the alt font

Lets try the roman fonts. The following is my main file:

\input fontinst.sty



\fromafm{fglr7a} % Not sure this is needed

% Obtaining the right names from the alt font



% We take the ligatures from the alt font, disabling kerning for precaution
% t1fj.etx adds the fj ligature


% Oldstyle is tricky, because additionaly we have to take the three accents from the other font




fglfj.mtx sets the kerning for the fj ligature (like newlatin for the other)





t1fj.etx adds the fj ligature in the slot of perthousandzero



% We use perthousandzero
   \comment{The `fj' ligature.  It should be two characters wide in a
      monowidth font.}

      \comment{The letter `{f}'.}


usetacc.mtx unsets the three accents





Finetuning of the accents placement is needed, though.
