I have problems creating a new mapping for a postscript font.
I want to use the font-family <TheSans> from Luc(as) de Groot.

The font only holds a .PFM file but no .afm file.
The. PFM looks similary to those in grDevices\afm

When i use postcriptFont(), i get an error!
ivalid font metric information in PostScript font specification

(I copied the original .PFM as .afm into the grDevices\afm folder. I use 
the Windows version)

€½ %!PS-AdobeFont-1.0: TheSans-5Regular 1.0
