Hi Thanh,

>expansion can be used without expanded tfm. One can say:
>\pdffontexpand\f 20 20 5 autoexpand
>and pdftex will create those expanded tfm like cmr10+10, cmr10-20, etc.
>automatically. This also works for virtual fonts (like ptmr8t).

>[to Hans Hagen: the djgpp binary of pdfxtex is avail. at the same
