Dear Folks
I just joined this email list this afternoon. Incidentally I recently
succeeded in getting a number of Type 1 fonts, some bought from Adobe,
others manufactured myself, and others from Y&Y, working in 
TeTeX / CMacTeX / TeXShop.
There are free utilities for converting between pfa, pfb and lwfn.
There are free utilities for generating a new afm from a pfb and of 
course for converting afm to tfm. The .map files are not very difficult
to understand. Occasionally one needs to reencode a font, with a .enc
file which is just a table of "from" -> "to" (or vice versa).
I'll try to collect the information I have and will post it, if it would
be relevant to the question.
Richard Gill.
