# [Fontinst] msam.etx

tex seems to choke on the encoding file msam.etx distributed with
fontinst. This appears to be because it interprets a line of commentary
literally. Commenting this line out solves the problem:

--- msam.etx	2006-01-12 23:45:36.000000000 +0000
+++ msam.etx	2010-07-22 12:02:41.000000000 +0100

in the \textit{file list} argument of \verb+\installfont+, or generate

However, I'm sure this isn't the best way to do it. I assume there is a
way of getting fontinst to regard this part of the commentary as a
comment so that it is still typeset as part of the encoding's
documentation. I'm just not sure how to do that so I did this just to
get it working.

Thanks,
