You are exactly right. Adobe doesn't always ship AFM files with their fonts,
and I was generating the AFM file from my font editing software. Apparently
there is a problem there. I found the AFM files on the Adobe web site,
downloaded them, and that fixed the problem. It was difficult enough to find
them on the Adobe site that I am posting the URL here in case this helps
There appears to be a roughly 128K limit to downloads in one session.
Thanks for your prompt and helpful advice.
