Hi Ken, Yaakov,

The package htmldoc
https://cygwin.com/packages/x86_64/htmldoc/htmldoc-1.8.28-3

is expecting the old fonts to be available
..
usr/share/htmldoc/fonts/Helvetica.afm -> 
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/n019003l.afm
usr/share/htmldoc/fonts/Helvetica.pfb -> 
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/n019003l.pfb
..
so currently is broken.

While grace and libwmf have both a copy of the same fonts:

usr/share/grace/fonts/type1/n019003l.afm
usr/share/grace/fonts/type1/n019003l.pfb
..
usr/share/grace/fonts/type1/n019003l.afm
usr/share/grace/fonts/type1/n019003l.pfb
..


Regards
Marco
