psfont.dtx is intended as a replacement for psfonts.dtx of psnfss. It uses one file for redefining the all default fonts instead of one file for each font. It also contains all parts of psfonts.dtx which are not covered by this general concept, ie. the pifonts, mathptm and two .fd-files for Adobe Symbol and Adobe Zapf Dingbats. This file is specific to PostScript fonts. The package works with a style file psfont.sty and a configuration file psfont.cfg. altfont.dtx uses the same concepts as psfont.dtx, but is written in a more general way. It can be used with any fonts which are to be used as default fonts. It is more powerful than psfont.dtx, but does not contain anything PostScript specific. It can be used as a replacement for some parts of both psnfss and mfnfss. Both files require LaTeX2e. Sebastian Kirsch <Sebastian_Kirsch@kl.maus.de>

psfont – Alternative font handling in LaTeX
The package offers a simple means of selecting fonts. It provides
options for specifying any default font, checks that the choice(s)
are valid, and if anything is unspecified supplies an appropriate
font. The package also contains all parts of the
psnfss which are not covered by this
general concept (i.e., the pifonts, mathptm and two fd-files for
Adobe Symbol and Adobe Zapf Dingbats). The package is specific to
Adobe Type 1 fonts.
Distribution is with the (rather more general) altfont package.
