I think this is what you're looking for:
It's a complete match list with the following headings:
Type 1 PostScript FontName

The notes are required reading! They explain some changes, and some items that
might affect text reflow.
The appropriate notes are associated with each listed font.
1) Although this is the main font in the merged OpenType font, other Type 1
fonts were also merged into the OpenType font, which thus has a larger glyph
2) Although the glyphs of this font are present in the OpenType font it has been
merged into, some or all of those glyphs are not the default forms for
characters supported by that font. Such glyphs are only easily accessible in
applications that support the relevant OpenType layout features, though they may
also be accessible if the application only supports Unicode. See the OpenType
User Guide for more informat
3) This font is a "pi" or symbolic font. Unless it is also a supplemental font
(note 2), see the "OpenType Pi Font Readme" for important usage notes
4) This multiple master font has different instances, each of which corresponds
to a different final OpenType fon
5) This font has no exact match. It was a mathematically narrowed or obliqued
font, which was replaced by a font that was designed to be condensed and/or
italic. Particularly in the case of obliqued to condensed swaps, metrics are
likely to be very differen
6) Although the characters of this font are present in the OpenType font it has
been merged into, accessing these characters requires that the application being
used support Unicode to access extended language support from a single font. See
the OpenType User Guide for more informatio
This page is an excellent introduction to the whole Type 1 to OTF migration
process. (I like the word 'migration' better than 'conversion'. It SOUNDS easier!)
This is great Herb. I really appreciate it. It looks like it's everything we need. I will have our graphics dept look at it and make sure it's good for them.
Thank you so much!!
Glad I could help.
I'm glad that those resources I put together are of some use. It took a long time to do....
Thank you, those documents were exactly what we needed. The PDF was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. I tried to get it into Excel or something so I could hide a few fields that may not be used but with no luck.
It made my Graphics Design department very happy including my VP.
I thought that there should be something available like that but it took me awhile to find it. Adobe support wasn't any help to me or one of my colleagues that had called in. I had also searched online for a few days.
This is great stuff and I really appreciate it.
