Concerns about copyright issues.

See http://www.adobe.com/supportservice/custsupport/SOLUTIONS/957a.htm

The files are at ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/

Also on TOC http://www.adobe.com/supportservice/custsupport/NOTES/3632.htm

The AFM files are on the Type on Call (TOC) CD.  You need to poke around
to find them since they are organized on font set number and may be marked
"hidden" or something.  But you do not need to buy fonts to access them.
