Hi fonTeXters,

I have incorporated your suggestions to storm-font-support:

I split Lido font to
1) Lido
2) Lido-Condensed

Incorporated, so \input t-math-sto.tex \usemathcollection[storm]
is no more needed; just e.g.

OK, I changed all typescripts in this way. But still there are some 
files that do not fit this concept:
a) redistributed files (storm.map, slido.map, stormex.enc)
b) enco-*.tex files since \useencodings has not enabled loading 
t-enco-*.tex yet (something like \useencoding[t][st1]).

TS1 is texnansi??? Why ec (=st1) is not sufficient? You can setup 
regime... If you persuade me I will prepare some enco-st4.tex(??) = 
texnansi for storm fonts.

I think it is a good idea. So please... After that I will write some 
words or two about the package and upload you the files. Is it OK?

Examples of mathbold (where bold font is available) were added to the 

F) -------------------------
Some bug fixes namely in t-type-slido.tex and t-type-sbiblon.tex.
