  A .tfm file was missing in the previous upload; sorry for any
  inconvenience, and thanks to Andreas Matthias (<amat at kabsi.at>) for
  signalling that error.

  Here follows the included README file:

On Tuesday 05 Feb 2002, Walter Schmidt (wal_schmidt at arcormail.de) has
posted a message on comp.text.tex about a freely downloadable
PostScript Type-1 font containing various types of ornaments.

The URL is http://www.galapagosdesign.com/download/index.html, and
contains the following lines:

        Galapagos Design Group is pleased to make available to the
        Internet community free downloads of original typefaces and

        Our first offering is a tasty border and ornament font called
        Web-O-Mints.  Created by George Ryan, Web-O-Mints contains a
        rich assortment of typographic decorations inspired by
        historical sources.

        The Web-O-Mints font is available in TrueType or PostScript
        format, for use on PCs or Macs.  Web-O-Mints can be downloaded
        and used immediately in all environments.  We hope you enjoy
        using this original collection of images.

Here are all the files needed to use these fonts in LaTeX (generated
with the "fontinst" package) and two small example LaTeX files.  Just
"make samples" in the directory to generate the PostScript output; needs
fancyhdr and config.pdf (for dvips).

Thanks for the upload.  I installed it as suggested replacing the old
version in CTAN:/tex-archive/fonts/webomints/
