Am I too old-fashioned that for me the obvious is to read the
documentation first?  The documentation recommends pbsi.sty, which
solves the problem.

By the way, for plain TeX users the road is only slightly more bumpy:
t1pbsi.sty inputs pbsi.fd, which has the lines

   <-> s * [1.2] pbsi8t

Thus the following should work - and it does!


\myfont The quick brown hippopotamus jumped over the lazy elephant.


Good luck
