   The planets must be in alignment, for there's another article at (
op=displaystory;sid=2002/6/5/111631/2102) regarding the creation of decent-
looking PDFs with LaTeX.

Quoting "H. S. Teoh" <hsteoh@...>:

I looked a couple of months ago, and the short answer is "no." For my fonting needs, I used to use Fontographer...which is unfortunately a heap of junk; kerning seems to be completely foobar. Just out of curiousity, would someone be willing to kern my font if I were to do the grunt work of creating the shapes? I also looked into METAFONT, but frankly, it's black magic of the darkest, arcanest sort. :Peter
