I have spent some while trying to look at Cyrillic encoding in PostScript fonts, partly to make Lucida Cyrillic available. While doing that I also looked at Monotype Times. What I have done is create: a) OT2enc.def and OT2wncyr.fd files to make Washington Cyrillic work in normal LaTeX. b) fontinst .mtx file for Cyrillic glyph names, and .etx file for OT2 encoding; these in two versions, one for the names as found in Monotype Times Cyrillic, and one for names in Lucida Cyrillic (AFII numbers, whatever they may be) c) a script (go) to run all the Monotype and Lucida fonts and make the metrics d) dvips map files for both families. The result is a pretty good match for Lucida, and an almost perfect one for Monotype Times. The only thing missing in the latter (I pull in a few characters from the corresponding roman font) is the strange mis-shaped breve at '044 in Washington Cyrillic. Note that i have left the Y&Y names for Lucida Cyrillic alone as the `raw' names because I couldnt be bothered to rename them Have fun Sebastian Rahtz November 22nd 1995 email@example.com (looked at and checked by Mattias Eller (firstname.lastname@example.org) in March 1996, and changes made to OT2enc.def and OT2wncyss.fd)
