I'd be interested to get a copy of your files.

On a related note, I realized that the Plain TeX solution I posted a  
few days ago about using Acorn with the lettrine package is not good--- 
it does not permit lettrine to adjust the size of the Acorn font. It  
does work correctly if you substitute the line


in place of

\font\Acorn Acorn at 22pt

The lettrine package produces warnings about unavailable font sizes in  
cmr unless you add the line
