One odd thing is that all I have are .pfa files for these fonts. I
thought Type 1 fonts came with a .pfb file (outlines) and a .pfm file
(metrics). I don't know what a .pfa file is. I could Google on it, but
it's late and I need to go to bed.
Another odd thing is why suddenly Scribus is picking them up, and no
other application on my computer sees them.
