Yes! Support for non-PDF output. Smaller production output. Besides 
this I really don't know how to select a fontsize, shape, encoding, and 
a specific glyph, for example \l. Where come the sty and fd files from? 
Is there more than just: "it works with pdfTeX"? It works with a map 
entry like

tfmname Basefontname <fontfile.ext xx.enc

Next month, or earlier, I would like to make a comparison of both 
methods. And their output quality. Right now I can see that fontinst 
delivers a perfect solution that fits perfectly into the usual work 
flow, what I can't see the 'direct' method is providing. Whoever dealt 
with it successfully? Where is some documentation about it? For 
fontinst and the usual use of fonts and encodings enough is written. 
For the conversion step I shall provide some descriptions that could be 
added to the end of Philip Lehman's fontinstallationguide ...
