           Summary: Handling download-ttcf font different from HP4100
           Product: GhostPCL
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: PCL fonts

When printing attached testfile to the standard (or with UFST) PCL6 built from
the latest trunk (9540) then the following error is returned:

ufst-debugobj/pcl6 -sDEVICE=x11 path_to/PCL6_MSP_Gothic.xl
GPL Ghostscript SVN PRE-RELEASE 8.65: Unknown TTC header version 00060040 in the
font nameless_font.

However, on a HPLJ4100 (our compatibility target) it prints correctly (14 pages)
Also the Zoran IPS6-IPS8 print the file correctly (it doesn't check the
Extra info: in the fontheader it specifies the TTCF (containter) instead of the
TRUE (single truetype) format.
I don't know if download fonts can be of TTCF format. Perhaps it should be
handled differently? Now it is handled in gstype42.c::gs_type42_font_init() and
discarded because of the unknown version.
