They cannot be converted to the obsolete PXL format which allows only 128 characters. If you are still using PXL format drivers, it is time to convert. If you are using a gf format driver with only 128 character capacity, you are missing something. See doc/install.tex. Metafont must have |max_in_open| increased (to 10) to compile these fonts as they stand. The appropriate change has been added to the change files on the UnixTeX distribution. If you're getting these fonts other than from the TeX distribution, and if you don't have access to Metafont source, you'll have to merge some files before you attempt compilation: In src/s.mf, replace the line readfrom("gen_sigma") by the contents of src/gen_sigma.mf. In src/lower.mf, replace each line by the contents of the corresponding file; for instance, replace readfrom("a") by the contents of src/a.mf. In greek.mf, right after the line that says ``font_setup'' insert the lines readfrom("gen_acc"); readfrom("gen_sigma"); HMC: At HMC a couple of modifications have been made to the MF files: The definition of readfrom has been changed so that no directory information is present. accent.mf has been renamed graccent.mf and punct.mf has been renamed grpunct.mf to prevent conflicts with CM files. TODO: create digamma add kerning, especially between accents and capitals create more typefaces (italics?) complete hyphenation table create tick marks for numbers
