Greetings all (esp. Adam ;),

I'm experimenting a bit again with texfont. I'm having trouble  
getting DTL's Haarlemmer OTF to work. For starters, one file:  
H022X13D.otf (which is Haarlemmer Regular):


  texfont --fo=MyFontRoot --ma --in --ve=dtl --co=haarlemmer --lcdf -- 
pre --va=liga,kern,onum

following that, trying

Curiously (it seems to me), while there is no texnansi-LIGA-KERN-ONUM- 
H022X13D.tfm file, there is a texnansi-LIGA-KERN-ONUM- 
DTLHaarlemmerDOT-Regular.tfm file.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
David Wooten
