Ok, turns out, I need to do both hinting and kerning (the letter spacing
was off too). So, some searching found that I need to use
plug-in-freetype, which takes care of all of this, and produces *perfect*
text for me, at least in interactive mode.
I seem unable to specify the font_file correctly to be able to call it in
non-interactive mode though. The font file name is actually
"wmb_____.pfm". I've tried that, with and without the full path
("c:\Windows\fonts\wmb_____.pfm"), and I've tried the font name by itself
("Myriad Bold"). I am able to select the font correctly in interactive
Any hints here?
