1.2. Submitting corrections/errata

Please don't send me html ! I con't do anything with it. Instead, send a patch based on the sgml source. To do this, edit Font-HOWTO.sgml, save the new file to, and run the diff program:
diff -u Font-HOWTO.sgml
and send me the patch. If I like it, it's easy for me to add it immediately. It's also easy for me to quickly inspect the changes and decide whether or not I like them.

1.5. Rationale

I'm going to make this brief (-; The purpose of this document is to address what was a gaping hole in font documentation. While previously, there were several documents about fonts for Linux, I felt that none of them were comprehensive, all of them had a relatively narrow focus. Hence the goal of this document is not to provide radical new insight into the issue of font handling ( though I have included material previously unavailable ), the main aim is to provide a comprehensive source to act as a starting point for any and all font questions about Linux.

1.6. Credits and Acknowledgements

Special thanks are due to Rod Smith, who made several helpful suggestions, and fixed pfm2afm. Also thanks to Doug Holland, whose Font Deuglification HOWTO proved to be a good reference, John McLaughlin, author of the document that helped me come to grips with Star Office, and the Linux community for their suggestions and constructive comments.
