Converting between font formats (convertfont, etc.)

You can also use F3 fonts with an X11 server, by converting them to a bitmap (X11 bdf format) first. Your license restricts use of these fonts on another machine, and unless you have NeWSPrint you shouldn't use them for printing. Having said all that... you can use makeafb and convertfont to generate bdf files that you can compile with bdftosnf or bdftopcf.

Use mftobdf (from the SeeTeX distribution) to convert TeX PK fonts to X11 BDF format, which you can then use with either X11 or OpenWindows.
