psnfssx-8r – Raw Type 1 fonts with LaTeX
This package provides LaTeX support for the 8r encoding, which is how Adobe Standard Encoding Type 1 fonts are represented within a TeX system. Normally, 8r encoding is merely the base encoding of virtual fonts that specify OT1 or T1 encoding, but when virtual fonts are undesirable (for speed reasons) or unavailable, this package will serve.
Users should note that the package is unsupported, and that it is not recommended by the LaTeX team.
