Well, perhaps it's simply because Mathematica has their own format
of character encoding tables in some auxiliary files. I've had a look
at these files first, but then I've noticed that there seem to be some
discrepancies between these encoding tables and the actual font layout.
So far, I've simply used afm2tfm, so that I could run "tex testfont"
and work with the printout of the font tables.
