    the problem is as follows: for Computer Modern fonts, names in AFM
    and in PFB differ in case. The font is named "cmr10" in cmr10.afm -
    but cmr10.pfb has "CMR10". (Strictly speaking, this is an error in the
    font). This problem manifests in PostScript only; PDF uses a different
    mechanism to bind font names to outlines.

    To fix, specify <font name="CMR10" ...> (all uppercase) in fonts.xml.

    Best regards,
    Nikolai Grigoriev
