I've been installing PostScript Type 1 fonts in TeXLive, where I've used the texnansi encoding. Everything worked very well with every PS Type 1 font I tried, except when I came to the Symbol font, where a font display printout showed absolutely nothing but empty slots. Should I have used another encoding? At least I thought I should have seen something. The font printout was done by means of the \char command, i.e. \char0 \char1 \char2 . . . \char255. I realize that the Symbol font is already there by default. But I nevertheless thought it might be valuable to learn how to install a slightly different Symbol font.
