Thank you very much for this clear explanation. :-))

There is, however, a minor problem:

Faked math fonts may internally be made up from 8r fonts, e.g.
the sources of my mathpple fonts have:

\transformfont{pplr8r} {\reencodefont{8r}{\fromafm{pplr8a}}}
   {pplr8r,gceurm10,latin,unsetppl,kernoff,cmr10 scaled 1042}

It was reported to me that a dvi file using such vf's would
trigger a problem with DVItoMP, most probably because a 
different pplr8r (the ligfull one) with a different checksum
was "known" (?) to DVItoMP:

>dvitomp XX.dvi XX.mpx
>DVItoMP warning: Checksum mismatch for pplr8r 

I have developed the the mathpple fonts, so I have to ask:
What can I do about this?
