It seems that Mathematica provides fonts in the following
forms: .pfa, .tfm, .afm. I must admit I don't know what all this
means. dvips (a program used in conjunction with TeX and LaTex)
apparently needs the fonts in the .pfb format. How does one construct
a file of the correct type from the fonts provided by Mathematica.

I'm using Mathematica 5.2. I could update using my university's site
licence if that would help.

Apparently there are programs with names like pfa2pfb, maybe one in
perl. Does anyone know how I can get these?

I work on Mac Os X 10.4.11.

Thanks
David Epstein
