Oh yes, right you are! I just downloaded the fonts, and I am finding a
font.afm file, a font.pfm file, and a font.pfb file. Everything should
be there to create a font-metrics file and to embed the font.

But when I type:

java  org.apache.fop.fonts.apps.PFMReader a010013l.pfm out.xml

I get this error message:

[INFO] PFM Reader v1.1a
[INFO] Reading a010013l.pfm...
[INFO] 31015 kerning pairs

On a linux sysem, if I do:

cat a010013l.pfm

I get a strange result. The file is outputted to the terminal, but an
premature end of file seems to be reached.
