Am I right in thinking that Adobe released this rather nice
font family for public domain distribution?

If so, I need to find the original Adobe AFM (metrics) files;
the version I downloaded from CIX has no kerning information.
If someone could point me in the direction of an ftp site where
I can get the original Utopia AFMs, I'll repost the summary here.

Please DON'T followup to this message; I only have write access
to Usenet. If I get any useful information, I'll summarise it

Thanks in advance,

Stewart C. Russell

If you have the X11R5 distribution from MIT, then you have it already.
Otherwise, you can FTP it from

I append the README from this directory. The distribution consists of
afm and pfa (ASCII Type-1) files for each of the four faces.
