Can you ? Did you know that, at least on Irix, X will serve up Type1 fonts ? And we have those ? And they are better than Truetype ?

This directory contains a rasterizer for "Type 1" (PostScript) format
outline fonts. It was donated by IBM for the R5 contrib tape and has
been maintained since then by the MIT X Consortium. This version is
compatible with X11R5 public patch 13.
To be used, this rasterizer must be bound into the X server and the font
server. It is most convenient to do this if this directory is moved
into the 'mit' directory tree (i.e., mit/font/lib/font/Type1, a peer of
the 'Speedo' directory). Of course, mit/font/lib/font/Imakefile must be
made aware of its new subdirectory and the objects in it. In any case,
you must ensure that the library mit/font/lib/font/libfont.a contains
In addition, the rasterizer must be "registered" with X. The source in
mit/fonts/lib/font/fontfile/renderers.c, specifically the routine
FontFileRegisterFontFileFunctions(), must be modified to add the line:
after the call to "SpeedoRegisterFontFileFunctions".
Some Type 1 fonts have been donated; see, for example, the directory
contrib/fonts/scaled/Type1. In order to use them, they must be in the
font path, either by combining them in some existing font object
directory, or adding a new font directory to the path.
