after I converted MacOSX's Optima.dfont for usage with TeX I experienced that this Adobe Optima (Regular, Italic, Bold, BoldItalic, ExtraBold) doesn't have extra kerning pairs.
(And I don't have any idea how to create these on my own.)
So I had a look at WalterSchmidt's page (home.vr-web.de/was/fonts.html), and fortunately he provides files for Regular and Bold - which work fine - but not Italic or BoldItalic fonts.
So now I just have to find metric files (including kering pairs) for
Adobe Optima-Italic and Optima-BoldItalic.
Does anybody can help me with that?
