"Bruno Voisin" meinte doch tatsächlich:

> map +cm-super-t2c.map

thanx a LOT - but where on earth did you find this information? i searched
for days using google, ctan, various faqs, newsgroups (should've come here
earlier, i guess <g>)...

well, one problem, though:



doesn't work, or rather the oldstylenums are still only bitmaps. any
workaround for these?

uhm, the way i understood this applies to the files in texmf.local, which
sounds reasonable, since these may get updated. i may be wrong, though.

could it be that we could create


in our library with nothing but the above lines? would be cool to have the
map files added this way while leaving all the other settings in texmf.local

guess i'll try this and report.

i know what you mean... :)

thanx again
