Index of /fonts/ljmetrics
This directory contains version 0.9 of the HP LaserJet built in font metrics.
They were derived directly from the metric information provided by HP in the
LaserJet IV Developers Kit.
In general, the name of a font metric file in this distribution has the
Where "xxx" is an abbreviation for the typeface, "99U" is the HP
symbol set of the metrics, and "yy" is the size of the font (this is only
specified for fixed-sized fonts). Built in fonts must be selected by symbol
set, so VF files should be build to remap the characters. The LJ4's
user-defined symbol set feature is not supported.
When HP released the LJ4 metrics, they included a set of LJ3 metrics that
where different from the LJ3 metrics distributed earlier. The metrics used
in this release are from the files that HP suggests for LJ3 and LJ4 printers.
Note that LJ4 printers include all of the LJ3 fonts, so both sets must be
retrieved to use all the fonts.
In an effort to make the distribution more understandable, metrics are
divided into LJ3 and LJ4 subdirectories and within each of those directories,
a directory exists for each typeface. At the lowest level, the archives
have names of the form
Where "n" is either 3 or 4 (for LJ3 or LJ4), "XXX" is a typeface abbreviation,
and "YY" is either "pl" or "tfm" indicating what sort of files are in the
archive. The typeface abbreviations are:

The major new feature in this release is the use of additional header words
in the TFM file to include HP-specific information about font selection.
The emTeX dvihplj driver (starting with version 1.5) and Karl Berry's
dviljk driver support this mechanism.
This release is again being offered in order to "get the metrics out there".
Additional changes may still be made. In particular, VFs for other encoding
schemes will be added, and I may rename the fonts in the next release
to conform with Karl Berry's font naming scheme.
