:-) Those fonts are also postscript fonts.

Use the installer from Walter Schmidt's page and install the font as
described. No renaming necessary, the script does it for you.

I don't know.

Only if you ask for them.

As long as you don't distibute them, I'd guess yes. But you shouldn't
ask me...

So, copy the attached file (warning: very experimental!!!) to your
directory and try to use it with:


 \definetypeface [lso][rm][serif][lbso] [default][encoding=ec]
 \definetypeface [lso][ss][sans] [lsso] [default][encoding=ec]
 \definetypeface [lso][tt][mono] [lctso][default][encoding=ec]

\switchtobodyfont [ss]
