give me some guidance on this, before I get into trouble with my editor...]

Dear consortium,

I'm having trouble preparing times new roman for ConTeXt. I'm trying to follow
the instructions in mag-0009.pdf, but TeXfont does not want to behave:-(

===========================================================
\system_fonts>texfont --vendor=microsoft --collection=times
--encoding=texnansi --pattern=times*.afm

 TeXFont 1.5 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2001 (STILL BETA)

   processing aborted : unknown option --pattern=times*.afm
===========================================================

I tried things manually without the --pattern option and got a

texnansi-microsoft-times.tex

file, from which I manually constructed a

texnansi-microsoft-times.map

file with four lines:

===================================================
texnansi-raw-times    4 < times.pfb   texnansi.enc
texnansi-raw-timesbd  4 < timesbd.pfb texnansi.enc
texnansi-raw-timesbi  4 < timesbi.pfb texnansi.enc
texnansi-raw-timesi   4 < timesi.pfb  texnansi.enc
===================================================

I then tried manually constructing the tfm files with afm2tfm but alas...

\system_fonts>afm2tfm times[bd|bi|i]
! no Adobe characters
% LIGKERN ff l =: ffl ;
^
and empty tfm files

Not sure where to go from here...

I'm also going to need Arial from WINNT\Fonts as well...
