I have a font that I have installed with
psnfss and which I use for math italic. But it is clear from the PDF files generated with that font that the bar accent in math mode is not generated from the overbar character in the font (they clearly don't have the same shape), and I don't want to use
\overline to achieve the same effect.
I do the usual
for i in *.pl ; do pltotf $i ; done
for i in *.vp; do vptovf $i ; done
- copy the file to the right directories (including the
.fd) in the the TeX live kpathsea tree
- add the right entries to
pdftex.map(yes, I know I should be using the
updmapmachinery do to this)
It's clear that the PDF files generated with this routine that the overbar accent is not the one included in the font.
