I got off to a bad start when !FTPc did not find communicator in pub.
Changing the URL prefix to http: and Oregano2 obliged.
Done all that, and after a brief read of the help file for TTF2f,
put off doing anything more till another day.
One thing I couldn't quite follow is where to put the converted font.
The converted font is a RISC OS font and it goes inside any !Fonts
application, mine went into !Boot.Resources.!Fonts
The awkward bit on the Iyonix is updating the Messages1 file. A new font
not referred to in that file will not be available for use. I used
!ScanFonts from Select which works with Aemulor. Otherwise the new font
could be extracted, put into a dummy !Fonts and then installed via the
Castle Iyonix, RISC OS 5.08.
