Hey Chris,

The use of the metric files was a legacy attempt from the earlier trunk,
when I was using the old AT format.. just seemed to work that way.

I have since moved away from the metrics in my testing (as you will see from
the thread..)

Thanks for your response!

What affect are you expecting from metric files exactly? You shouldn't 
need to use metric files with FOP trunk in all but a tiny number of use 
cases (IIRC, TTC is the main use case where metric files must still be 
used) In all other cases using metric files puts you at a disadvantage, 
i.e. FOP will ignore AFM Files for Type1 Fonts.

I was going to ask for more details on the problem but looks like you've 
provided further information in a separate thread.
