On Sun, 13 Feb 2005 Ralf Stubner submitted version 1.002 of the FPL fonts

The FPL Fonts provide a set of SC/OsF fonts for URW Palladio L which are
compatible with respect to metrics with the Palatino SC/OsF fonts from the
original Adobe fonts. The SC and OsF in the FPL Fonts were designed with
the glyphs from URW Palladio L as starting point. For some glyphs (eg 'o')
I got the best result by scaling and boldening. For others (eg 'h')
shifting selected portions of the character gave more satisfying results.
All this was done using the free font editor FontForge
(http://fontforge.sf.net). The kerning data in these fonts comes from
Walter Schmidt's improved Palatino metrics.
