ly1 – Support for LY1 encoding

The Y&Y ‘texnansi’ ( and ANSI, for Microsoft interpretations of ANSI standards) encoding lives on, even after the decease of the company; it is known in the scheme of things as LY1 encoding. This bundle includes metrics and macros to use the basic three (Times, Helvetica and Courier) Adobe Type 1 fonts in using LY1 encoding.
