psnf­ssx – Ex­tra styles and en­cod­ings for PostScript fonts

Ex­tends the list pack­ages and en­cod­ings for us­ing scaleable fonts be­yond those avail­able in the ‘re­quired’ bun­dle. Fonts cov­ered in­clude some that are only com­mer­cially avail­able. Pack­ages in­clude:

The Mi­cro­press fonts, Lu­cida, Math­time and the Euro­pean Modern fonts are not them­selves avail­able free, and are not there­fore pro­vided on the archive. (Bitmap ver­sion of the Mi­cro­press fonts are avail­able — see Hel­vetica-Math and Times-Math bitmap font sam­ples.)
