Most of the posts on this thread do NOT deal with "errors" but rather with
inconsistent behaviour, with the fact that in the list of examples given,
some of them run and some not in the widest distributed TeX installation
there is.If the fonts are good enough to show up in the catalogue, why they
are not good for TeXLive? Some
 of these work fine on MikTeX.
