Given the popularity of PDF, the pain that is OT1, and the bad on-screen rendering of bitmapped fonts in Adobe's software, I would have expected that someone would have undertaken conversion/extension of the BlueSky fonts to the T1 encoding while maintaining the quality of the hints ... but I've seen nothing about such a project anywhere.
Why is that? (Or am I wrong? I would love to be wrong!)
Now I've seen that someone is selling European Computer Modern fonts in Type1(?), and evidently they use T1 -- but why are they not free yet?
