Topic: access ocrb linux within pdf

I have installed the font ocrb on a redhat linux
I have verified the installation with:
[applsadev@zeopard raid5]$ xlsfonts -u | grep ocrb
-adobe-ocrb-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1
-misc-ocrb-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-ascii-0
That looks good
I have written a small sample pdf script:
< /Name /F0
/Subtype /Type1
/Encoding /WinAnsiEncoding
/BaseFont /ocrb
/FirstChar 24
/LastChar 255
/Widths 8 0 R
/FontDescriptor 9 0 R
>>
endobj
The font F0 should be ocrb to complete the font description we have also added
