I am using the EmTeX MetaFont and MFJob to create fonts for my DeskJet Plus.
The supplied default is to create fonts for a LaserJet. In general these
fonts work fine except that because the DeskJet has a slightly finer Dot
resolution, the thin parts of some letters seem a bit too thin when compared
to the output from a LaserJet. I don't have the Metafont Book ( could anybody
supply me with the ISBN number), and I am rather unfamilier with Metafont, I
was hoping that someone could suggest some modifications to the "local.mf"
supplied with EmTeX to work better with the DeskJet. The LaserJet definition
they use is as follows:
mode_def hplaser =
I have tried adjusting some of the values, but with little luck in making
a difference. Because of the time needed to generate fonts, I am soliciting
help on how to make a small bit bolder.
